We\u2019re in the age of spin-offs at the movie theatre, and the next franchise to come from the\u00a0X-Men\u00a0universe looks like it will be\u00a0Multiple Man, starring none other than James Franco himself. Multiple sources have come out saying that 20th\u00a0Century Fox will be pushing the film through along with\u00a0X-men: Dark Phoenix,\u00a0Gambit,\u00a0New Mutants, and last but not least,\u00a0Deadpool 2.\r\n\r\nAccording to a report by Deadline, Franco will be producing the film himself through his company Ramona Films and along with Simon Kinberg, an XCU architect who has helped him hugely with previous projects. Ramona Films also produced the actor\/director\u2019s film\u00a0The Disaster Artist, which came out of the film\u00a0The Hardy Men\u00a0\u2013 a collaboration between Franco and Kinberg that looked into the crime-fighting Hardy Boys all grown up.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe late Len Wien initially conjured up Multiple Man in 1975 in the fourth installment of the Giant-Size Fantastic Four comic series\u2019 first volume. Jamie Madrox. AKA the\u00a0Multiple Man, has the power to clone himself, making him both an X-Men at times or a criminal, depending on the different manifestations\u00a0Multiple Man\u00a0has taken on over the years.\r\n\r\nThe movie will most certainly have a comedic tone, especially with James Franco as the leading man. It\u2019s looking like another take on\u00a0Deadpool, but a cleaner one. Then again, you never really know what\u2019s going to come out of Franco\u2019s mouth. 20th\u00a0Century\u2019s latest box office successes have definitely taken a turn down a grittier and more R-rated path with movies like\u00a0Deadpool\u00a0and the critically acclaimed\u00a0Logan.\r\n\r\nSo it\u2019s a movie where James Franco makes a whole bunch of other James Franco\u2019s and then the James Franco\u2019s talk, joke and fight crime with each other? Sounds like an obvious box-office home run to us.
