Per The Hollywood Reporter, James Franco's time as Franco on "General Hospital" has had more than one purpose. Aside from merely being part of the Daytime drama, the actor, along with Ian Olds, created a new version of Franco in their film "Francophrenia."

Using existing footage shot by Franco during his time on "GH," he and Olds created a new narrative. The film, co-directed by Franco and Olds, and alternatively titled "Don't Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is," will premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, which runs from January 25 – February 5. The film is described as a humorous psycho-thriller.
