James Franco is to teach high-school film classes

The 37-year-old star, whose film credits include 'This is The End' and 'The Interview', has revealed his intention to pass on his knowledge of the industry to young students, offering them the chance to apply online for his class at Palo Alto High School.

Writing on his Instagram account, James said: "I Will teach a high school film class at Paly High the class I would have wanted when I was in high school ONLY IN PALO ALTO! (sic)"

This comes shortly after James revealed he has penned a book about Lana Del Rey.

James co-authored a 100-page book with writer David Shields called 'Flip-Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey', which will be released in March 2016.

Previously, James revealed Lana didn't want to sit down for an interview with him, despite the fact the pair are close friends.

He said: "I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, 'Just write around me, it's better if it's not my own words.

"It's almost better if you don't get me exactly, but try.'"
