James Franco

Yes, I'm Really Making

A PORN Documentary

8/22/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you thought James Franco was kidding this month when he said on "Conan" he was directing a porn documentary ... think again -- because TMZ spies caught a glimpse of Franco earlier this summer ... staking out one of the biggest porn studios in the country.

Franco was seen chatting up some of the, umm... employees at Kink.com. James is helming a project about the company which plunked down $14.5 million to move into the old San Francisco Armory in 2006.

Franco toured the joint in June and is due back in the coming months to begin filming.

Franco is a lazy actor. I guess this just underscores it.

Franko is a crap actor. He gets sympathy gigs from his friends with help from his purdy face.

He needs to stop smoking the weed before he completely destroys his career.

Somebody might tell this fella that porn tends to expose itself, so there's not much he needs to investigate.

Franco looks like a greasy porn producer. He has been living the hard life (oops), good life (oops), Hollywood lifestyle...booze, drugs and porn.

Hey Franco, there is no love in porn and no love in Hollywood. You will be cast aside soon enough.

Remember, you will reap what you sow.

Gaydar going off the charts. Does he mistakenly think this doc will up his cool factor? Kind of surprising actually that he would swim in these waters, as he always seemed to be such a pseudo-intellectual. When you swim with the fishes...

California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom set up the whole armory lease for this company, and even declared Feb. 23 to be Colt Studio Day, honoring the 40th anniversary of a San Francisco movie company whose Web site invites visitors to "come inside to experience the hottest man-on-man action."

Now that he's done exploiting gays, he can move on to porn. I think his true talent was displayed when he hosted the Oscars. Worst ever.
