Hollywood's Jack of all trades, James Franco, will be returning to the Tribeca Film Festval for 2013. And this time, it's his producer's hat that he'll be sporting. Yes, the star has switched gears quite a bit from acting alongside his Spring Breakers' co-star Gucci Mane to focusing on the O.G. Gucci, the Italian fashion house that is the subject of his upcoming documentary.

Entitled The Director, the film follows the brand's creative director, Frida Giannini, during an 18-month period, which gives us a glimpse behind the scenes of the Gucci empire. Excited to see the ongoings of the iconic fashion label, the gorgeous designs in development, and the Franco-infused production, we get our first glimpse of the movie's official poster, seen above. Dark, mysterious, and dazzling — consider our cinematic appetites officially whet. And, be sure to keep watching this spot — we'll be featuring an exclusive interview with the movie's director, Christina Voros, once it debuts this April 21.
