New allegations regarding sexual misconduct by actor James Franco have just emerged, and these allegations are prompting questions and discussions regarding Franco's theater school named Studio 4. At one time, Studio 4 had locations in both New York City and Los Angeles, but both were closed some time ago.
As The Inquisitr detailed earlier, Franco's Studio 4 has been named as a location where multiple women allege that they were subjected to inappropriate sexual behavior from Franco, as well as others at the school.
According to Refinery 29, Franco created Studio 4 back in 2014. After teaching at a number of other schools, he decided to create something of his own and he collaborated with the acting school Playhouse West to launch this project.
The classes slated to be held at Studio 4 were set to focus on the Meisner technique that was created by late acting coach Sanford Meisner. Students would spend a great deal of time on improvisation and spontaneity, and Franco was reportedly planning to be heavily involved in the day-to-day operations.
As Studio 4 was launched, Franco also promised that he would cast many of the acting school's students for roles in professional projects he was doing. The actor's production company, Rabbit Bandini Productions, was linked to the acting school and students were promised that others from the industry would participate in Question and Answer sessions as well as regular scene nights.
