"Lovelace," "Kink," "Interior. Leather Bar," and "Spring Breakers" - four highly-anticipated upcoming films that all revolve around sex, BDSM, and pornography ... and all which star (either on or off the screen) 34-year-old Hollywood heartthrob James Franco. Does that make the California native a worthy contender to snag the coveted role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E.L. James' hit erotic trilogy "Fifty Shades of Grey?" Franco is set to premiere three rather raunchy, controversial movies/documentaries at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which has helped to recently spark some "Fifty Shades" buzz. But is the role of the handsome and kinky Christian Grey actually too "innocent and fictional" for Franco's taste?

Check out the four upcoming films where Franco delves into the world of porn, sex, and bondage:

- Amanda Seyfried stars as 70s' porn sensation Linda Boreman in the biographical film, "Lovelace." The movie chronicles Boreman's life as an infamous porn star until she eventually breaks free from her abusive husband and discloses the truth about the sex industry in order to prevent other women from getting similarly exploited. Franco stars as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

- 'Kink,' a documentary produced by Franco that follows the evolution of the world's second largest producer of BDSM pornography, kink.com. The film, directed by cinematographer Christina Voros, delves into the inner workings of the BDSM production company and attempts to demystify the BDSM-pornographic lifestyle. Check out the documentary trailer:


- Franco co-directed "Interior. Leather Bar" with Travis Mathews, a film that focuses on gay cruising. According to IMBd, the film "re-imagines the lost 40 minutes from [William Friedkin's 1980] 'Cruising' as a starting point to a broader exploration of sexual and creative freedom." "Cruising" stars Al Pacino as a police detective who goes undercover in the sleazy, underground gay subculture of New York City to catch a serial killer who is murdering numerous gay men with S&M tactics. "Interior Leather bar" includes many graphic scenes of gay sex and fallacio.


These three films will debute at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival which takes place from Thursday, Jan. 17 - Sunday, January 27.

- "Spring Breakers" follows the trials of four young, beautiful college girls who rob a fast food joint to pay for their spring break vacation. While partying in Flordia they get busted at a party with drugs and are thrown in jail. A drug and arms dealer (Franco) bails them out and requires them to do some of his dirty work for payback. At one point in the film Franco's character has a threesome with Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens. the movie is set to be released in the US on March 22, 2013.

Franco definitely has some hands-on experience when it comes to the (darker) side of "unforbidden" sex and BDSM. Not to mention that his handsome features and rather quirky yet charming persona makes him an ideal Christian Grey candidate. Even so, it turns out that after dealing with the real-life, kinkier side of the sex industry, "Fifty Shades" might be a little too "cookie cutter" clean for Franco's taste. The Golden Globe winner recently told MTV News:

"[Kink] is for all the '50 Shades of Grey' fans. This is what you're reading about. This is the real thing. This is what it looks like. This isn't the dime store version of bondage. This is what bondage is like... If you think about the origins of each of these [Sundance] films, it is a coincidence... But if you think about it as there's something in the air - and I do believe there are waves of things that interest filmmakers and people in television - then maybe it's not such a coincidence."

Did Franco just consider "Fifty Shades of Grey" the "dime store version" of bondage? What do fans think of that... and would "Fifty Shades" enthusiasts still like to see Franco up on the big screen as Christian Grey?
