Dave Franco set to star in The Intern's Handbook

Dave Franco has been steadily making a name for himself over the last few years. After turning out great comedy performances in 21 JUMP STREET and this summer's hit NEIGHBORS he’s about to star in what might become his own action franchise. Franco is set to star in THE INTERN'S HANDBOOK based on the novel of the same name by Shane Kuhn.

The story follows John Lago, the rising star at an intern placement agency that serves as a front for a secret network of assassins. When he’s set to assassinate a high-level executive, Lago finds his mission compromised by a beautiful FBI agent assigned with taking down the same target. The book was well reviewed when it hit shelves last month and is actually part of a planned trilogy.

Producer on the movie Neal Moritz said of Franco:

“We really feel like he’s the next star, we just think he has immense talent as a leading man, and he’s someone who can do humor. He’s paid his dues. He’s built a great resume of co-starring roles, and he’s ready to be a lead. He’s not some guy being plucked from nowhere and told he’s the next big thing.”

I can't fault him there; Franco has definitely grown on audiences who have had the pleasure of seeing his supporting roles. He has never starred in his own movie though, so this should be a nice breakout for the actor. There is no release date set yet but we will keep you posted.  Do you think Franco has what it takes for the thriller?

He also doesn’t know what the hell his brother is up to these days:

Mr and Mrs Smith anyone?? Lol, throw in marriage and you have the exact same premise! That being said, I like this kid, I'll at least catch this On Demand.

Eek

I'm usually pretty easily entertained, but this kinda reminds me a little bit of Wanted, Mr./Mrs. Smith, etc. Also, not a huge fan of the Franco's, but will admit they are talented. However, there does need to be some younger blood in the action genre. Even guys like Rock and Mark Walberg are in their 40's so I reserve judgment until it comes out...

Awesome!

I have been on the "Dave Franco is going to be a big star" train for a while now and I think it's beginning to pickup some serious steam. Franco is a very funny, likable guy that I think could be a solid dramatic actor if given the right material and a solid filmmaker. It would be cool to see Dave Franco do a movie with Casey Affleck as a combination of the two incredibly talented, younger brothers of huge Hollywood stars. Maybe they could be the detectives on True Detective season 3 (I'm

I remember back when he was Cole-Fusion on the last season of Scrubs.

Good for Dave Franco for getting bigger and better roles and making a name for himself other then being James Franco's little brother. The guy was hilarious in Neighbors, 21 Jump Street, Now You See Me, and was one of the best parts about the last season of Scrubs.
