Director James Franco: 'Sal' Stills!

Director James Franco: 'Sal' Stills!

James Franco gives shirtless actor Val Lauren some direction in a locker room in these new Sal movie stills.

The 33-year-old actor wrote and directed the biopic, about deceased 1950s movie icon Sal Mineo (Val plays the title character).

Sal Mineo himself was an extraordinary and super complex guy,” Val told the Hollywood Reporter. “People know him for Rebel Without a Cause, but he was technically the first actor who came out of the closet. He was very brave.”

Sal is one of many films James plans on directing–he is also working on As I Lay Dying, Blood Meridian and The Night Stalker.
