James Franco has confirmed that he is working with producer Simon Kinberg on a new X-Men-related film - but won't confirm if its the reported Multple Man project.

“I do have a superhero that I am developing,” Franco told The Hollywood Reporter. “I don't know how much I can say. But I will say I am producing and performing in it. It's early stages. I think probably what I can say is, like anything, there's a need to develop more.”

“Our bottom line MO is, how can we push this into new ground? A little bit, but still make it entertaining?" he continued. "[But] what I love about what Simon Kinberg and Fox and the X-Men people have done with Deadpool and Logan - it took a while to get there, maybe 10 years - but they are going to go hard R. And we're going to take this superhero thing and really push it into a new genre. So we’re working with Simon Kinberg on an X-Men property.”

Franco is no stranger to comic book movie roles, having played Harry Osborn/the New Goblin in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films.
