A second film involving James Franco will be shot in Cincinnati while the popular actor is in the Tri-State.

The Greater Cincinnati Film Commission announced on Saturday that Hamilton County, Butler County and Cincinnati will serve as the backdrop of the film 'The Long Home.'

Rabbit Bandini's James Franco, Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis will team up with the Cincinnati Film Commission to produce the film while Franco and the production company is in town to shoot 'Goat.'

"There is nothing more exciting than bringing a project home, said Davis, a Hamilton, Ohio native. "Our families and friends are here and while we are having a great experience working with the Film Commission and Killer Films on “Goat” it seemed like a great time to get two projects done while on the ground in Ohio.”

Earlier this week, it was announced that Cincinnati would serve as the scenery for the James Franco produced film, 'Goat.'

'The Long Home' is a low budget feature that portrays the arrival of Dallas Harden, a violent bootlegger, who brings tragedy and destruction to a small rural town in the 1940's.
