It’s not easy to keep track of the 1001 things James Franco is up to at any moment, so you probably forgot that in 2011, he optioned the rights to “Zeroville” by Steve Erickson. Well, Franco surely didn’t forget this was on his To Do list, as the project is up and running, and he’s using his extensive Rolodex to fill out the cast.

Screen Daily reports that Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King and Horatio Sanz have joined “Zeroville,” which is now shooting with Franco directing and, of course, leading the film. And it has a meta flavor to it, it’s a movie about the movies, with the story revolving around a film-obsessed architecture student who is mistaken for one of the perpetrators of the Manon murders, and has the pictures of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift from “A Place In The Sun” tattooed on his head. Or in other words: A James Franco movie. Here’s the book synopsis from Amazon:

Zeroville is a unique love letter to film. It centers on the story of Vikar, a young architecture student so enthralled with the movies that his friends call him “cinéautistic.” With an intensely religious childhood behind him, and tattoos of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift on his head, he arrives in Hollywood where he’s mistaken for a member of the Charles Manson “family” and eventually scores a job as a film editor. Vikar discovers the frames of a secret film within the reels of every movie ever made, and sets about splicing them together—an undertaking that takes on frightening theological dimensions.

Like all of Franco’s projects, this is potentially interesting, but execution will be the factor here. But with Fox as a femme fatale, and Rogen playing a surf hippie named Viking Man, again, this could be wild stuff. With cameras now rolling, we’ll soon see.

Sony Pictures has nabbed the rights to The Intern’s Handbook: A Thriller, with plans to turn the project into a vehicle for actor Dave Franco.

Oren Uziel, who worked on Sony’s upcoming 22 Jump Street, in which Franco appears, is on board to write the script, based on a novel by Shane Kuhn.

Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur of Original Film — the company behind the Jump Street movies — will produce along with Circle of Confusion’s Brad Mendelsohn and David Alpert.

The idea behind Intern’s Handbook is thus: There’s a company called HR, Inc., an intern placement agency that is actually a front for a network of assassins whose targets are high-profile corporate executives. The best of the best in this world is John Lago, who can get coffee and make copies like no one else while stealthily ratcheting up a body count.

The story tells of Lago’s stint in a Manhattan law firm, where he’s working as a temp while gathering intelligence for his hit. He then meets his toughest adversary yet: a female FBI agent assigned to take down the same target.

Bullets and sparks fly.

The well-reviewed dark comedy hit shelves April 8, 2014, from Simon & Schuster, as part of a planned trilogy. Sony is looking at Intern’s Handbook as a potential franchise.

The acquisition, said to be in the high six figures, marks a step up for Franco, who has so far not toplined his own movie, but has done strong supporting work that has earned him a following.

The actor, who is repped by CAA, is currently sharing scenes with Zac Efron and Seth Rogen in Universal’s surprise hit comedy Neighbors. Among his other credits are both Jump Street movies, Warm Bodies and Now You See Me.

“We really feel like he’s the next star,” said Moritz. “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.”

Moritz says the producers see Intern’s Handbook as “a franchise made for a price with new emerging talent.”

The producer also described the book as having a “great attitude. It’s a look at what it’s like to be an intern, but in reality you’re so much more. The mantra is that interns are invisible, which makes them so good as assassins. No one sees them coming.”

Kuhn will executive produce. Hannah Minghella, Sony Pictures’ president of production; Lauren Abrahams, vice president of creative production; and creative executive Eric Fineman are overseeing for the studio

Kuhn is repped by Circle of Confusion and attorney Jeff Frankel. Uziel, who also worked on Sony’s Men in Black 4 and for Moritz, the spec Overnight, is repped by WME, Circle of Confusion and attorney David Fox.

Dave Franco knows exactly what his fraternity pledge name would have been: “Vertically Challenged.” Luckily, what the 5-foot-7 actor — starring as a loutish frat brother in Friday’s rowdy comedy “Neighbors” — lacks in inches, he makes up for in self-deprecating humor.

Chalk up the defense mechanism to growing up under the thumb of a sadistic older sibling: James Franco.

“[James’] main form of torture when we were growing up, he would zip me up fully in a sleeping bag and tickle torture me from the outside. That’s the definition of torture,” Dave, 28, tells The Post.

“I’d be screaming and crying, and he just happened to be the best tickler of all time.”

Now that Dave’s all grown up, he’s finally out of his big brother’s shadow and grabbing some of the spotlight himself, thanks to flicks like “21 Jump Street” (he also has a part in “22 Jump Street,” out in June) and his cult “Funny or Die” videos.

In “Neighbors,” Dave plays Pete, a seemingly dim wingman to Zac Efron’s frat president. The two, and their pals, are responsible for terrorizing a pair of new parents (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) who move in next door with their baby.

Louis Leterrier’s 2013 magicians and con artists thriller Now You See Me was an out-of-left-field hit, a crackling ensemble film that dropped into theaters amidst the likes of busy blockbusters like Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Into Darkness… but surprised the industry by having massive legs. By the time it was finished, the film had banked a whopping $117.7 million domestically, and a powerful $351 million worldwide, carried by the drawing power of the film’s personable co-stars: Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman and Dave Franco. The sequel was greenlit, and today, we picked up a few details on the production’s possible future.

Dave Franco jumped on the phone with me this afternoon to talk about Neighbors, the hysterical dudes-versus-parents comedy from director Nicolas Stoller that will entertain audiences beginning next week. It’s one of a few winners Franco has on his summer agenda, which also includes June’s massive sequel, 22 Jump Street (where he says he has a brief, but memorable cameo in a prison cell). And he thinks he’s going from this busy summer into the planned Now You See Me 2, which allegedly is filming at the end of the year.

On the topic of that sequel, Dave Franco told me:

Last I heard, we were still going at the end of this year. … I’ve heard a pitch of the story. It’s actually going to be really exciting. I was slightly weary, just because you never know when it comes to a sequel. But I think the first one opened up enough avenues. There are many directions left to explore. There are many places that it can go, and they really – they held true to the spirit of the first one, but it’s going to be enough of a departure that it doesn’t just feel like a complete copy of the first one.”

Franco went on to explain that a big portion of Now You See Me 2 will be spent exploring who this tight-knit band of illusionists really are off of the stage. As he mentions, they spent so much time in the first movie on a stage, in various states of performance, and the team now wants to figure out who they are as individuals – and likely, who they can scam next.

Who will be back for Now Your See Me 2 (or, Now You Still See Me)? Louis Leterrier is scheduled to return to the director’s chair. Most of the original cast is expected to return, while Deadline reported in February that locations will shift to Europe and Asia to capitalize on the first film’s international successes. While he waits for that script, Dave Franco kills it opposite Zac Efron in Neighbors, which opens on May 9. Check it out.

So only one of you went to college [Franco], but you weren’t in a frat. Why not?
Dave Franco: Just going into college, I just had this idea in my head that I never wanted to join one. There’s actually no reason in particular. But I ended up being the guy who befriended people in the frats because USC is kind of in a seedy neighborhood, so the only party scene is at these fraternities. So, I had to befriend these guys, and it was never entirely comfortable because I knew a handful of guys in the house and the rest of the guys were like, “This guy didn’t go through pledge semester; what the hell is he doing here?”

What about you guys [Carmichael and Mintz-Plasse] — would you have been in a frat if you went to college?

Jerrod Carmichael: I think maybe I would have. I think it’s a fun part of the college life, I feel like, yeah, it would’ve been exciting.
DF: [To Chris] How would you have felt about pledge semester?
JC: No, I would just get in.
DF: What if you had to… have your pledge brother throw up on your face?
CM: No, no that is not worth it to me.
JC: I would only join a frat, whatever frat Chris and Dave were a part of. That’s the only way I would join.
DF: Just so we could throw up on your face.
