    Franco is about to unleash his first novel after signing a deal with Amazon Publishing, the New York Observer reports.

    Titled Actors Anonymous, the book is said to be loosely based on Franco's life and was acquired by Amazon's fiction editor, Ed Park, a former Los Angeles Times book columnist.

    This isn't the 33-year-old star's first foray into the literary world. Franco published Palo Alto, a collection of short stories, last June.

    No word on when his latest creative effort will be released.
