The Oscar host has announced he'll be teaching a class on directing at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, according to the NY Post. The class will focus on adapting poetry into short films.

NYU's faculty member John Tintori tells the Post:

    “He’s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students. He’s incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic - and that’s another thing to impart to our students.”

Only 12 students will be able to take Franco's course. As for his own studies, James is expected to earn his MFA in film production this May.
