Actor James Franco is hoping to collaborate on a new film with "Summertime sadness" hitmaker Lana Del Ray.

In an essay penned by Franco, he has said of the singer that she "isn’t made for the Earth", and revealed that the two have discussed working together on a film project, reports.

The essay, written for V magazine, Franco has said: "She has this idea for a film. I want to do it because it’s a little like ‘Sunset Boulevard’. A woman is alone in a big house in Los Angeles. She doesn’t want to go out. She starts to go crazy, and becomes paranoid because she feels like people are watching her. Even in her own house. It’s like an awesome B-movie that lives in Lana’s head. It’s about her, and it’s not about her. Just like her music."

However, it’s unclear whether or not the project will get off the ground, as Franco admits he has a hard time even getting Del Ray to sit down and talk with him.

"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’," he wrote.

In the past, the actor spoke of how "enamoured" he was with the singer.

"There’s a weird thing with creative types. Sometimes I love a person’s work and, like, I’m just so enamoured with that and their persona in their work. But outside of that, it’s like, our dynamic is we’re just kind of friends, we get along so well. But all this sexual attraction is for the person and the work," he said earlier.
