London: ‘127 Hours’ star James Franco is planning to launch an online filmmaking school.

The 35-year-old actor is currently teaching graduate filmmaking and screenwriting classes at Ucla in Los Angeles, and now he`s keen to teach budding writers and directors via the Internet, reported Contactmusic.

"I teach at Ucla and Usc and Cal Arts (universities) but I am gonna do an online filmmaking class...

"Ucla and Usc are two of the best film schools in the world and it is hard to get in, it is expensive, so I like the idea of also teaching people that can`t afford that or can`t get in," Franco said.
