James Franco and Amber Heard Lovers on the Set of "The Adderall Diaries" ; Is Amber an Evil Stepmom?
He has 16 films set to come out through 2016 and is currently the main star of Broadway smash-hit Of Mice and Men.
And James Franco was hard at work on the set of his latest project, The Adderall Diaries on Saturday.
The 36-year-old star was seen with his arm around co-star Amber Heard, 28, as the two filmed scenes in New York City together.
The duo looked quite comfortable with one another as they walked together with their arms around each other while shooting the movie.
And while it was just for the cameras, James looked quite pleased to be cuddled up next to the beautiful star.
Earlier this week the duo joked around in front of a green screen as they pretended to read books while riding a motorcycle, while Amber also carried her dog, in a new image posted to Franco's Instagram page.
He captioned it:
'The Wild Ones: Just ridin' the hog and readin' sum theory with Amber and Pistol!'
Despite the two having fun, the film's subject matter is much more serious in tone as it details a man's search for his identity while investigating a notorious 2007 San Francisco murder trial about a computer programmer who kills his Russian wife, whom he met through an online dating service.
Franco acquired the rights to Stephen Elliott's memoir The Adderall Diaries in September 2010.
Pamela Romanowsky is directing the adaptation based on script she penned with the multi-faceted actor.
The crime thriller also stars Ed Harris, Cynthia Nixon and Christian Slater.

Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Reports: Actors Kids Despise Their Wannabe Stepmom
Contrary to some reports that Johnny Depp's soon-to-be wife Amber Heard has created a strong stepmom bond with the actor's two children, Lily-Rise and Jack. New reports claimed that the kids despise the young actress. Along with Depp's ex-partner Vanessa Paradis, his two kids reportedly loathe Heard's gold-digging ways according to gossip Web site Celebdirty Laundry.
"Apparently, Vanessa has now taken an active disliking to Amber, even though she never used to care before," according to a report posted on the Web site. Paradis allegedly haf a change of heart because of her kids and they don't seem to be fond of their father's new fiancé as they feel like she is encroaching their time to spend with him.
Based on the Web site's sources, Heard tried so hard to be close with the kids that the exact opposite happened that made the kids distance themselves even more. Johnny's eldest child is reportedly vehement in her dislike to her future stepmom and her opinion is obviously affecting Paradis after the "Pirate of the Caribbean" star decided to get married to someone who's so much younger than him.
Radar Online reported exclusively that 28-year-old actress is getting cozy with the actor's kids and even took Lily-Rose on a girls' day at L.A.'s Fred Segal in February. "It took Johnny a long time to get to this point with the kids, but this spring has marked Amber becoming a true part of the family and being involved with the upbringing of Johnny's kids - albeit on a somewhat limited basis," a source told the Web site.
The source also revealed that "The Rum Diary" star has spent her time with the kids every weekend especially when they are in L.A. and not working on any project. Planning for a fall wedding, the newly-engaged couple is working their way to marriage as they spent some time as a family with his two kids.
"Johnny has gotten in the habit of setting up remote weekend getaways with Amber and the kids, and usually he will lease a helicopter and have them all ferried to a remote location or resort in Southern California," the source added.
Johnny Depp’s fiancée Amber Heard has developed “a strong stepmom-type bond” with his two children, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
According to a source close to the situation, Depp’s kids from his relationship with Vanessa Paradis — daughter Lily-Rose, 14, and son Jack, 12 — are getting cozy with his soon-to-be-wife, Heard.
“It took Johnny a long time to get to this point with the kids, but this spring has marked Amber becoming a true part of the family and being involved with the upbringing of Johnny’s kids — albeit on a somewhat limited basis,” the source said. “Amber sees Johnny‘s children nearly every weekend Johnny does, especially when they’re in Los Angeles and not working on sets.”
In fact, Heard was seen having lunch and shopping with Lily-Rose on a girls’ day at L.A.’s Fred Segal in February. And the age gap between them — just 14 years — is nine years less than that between Heard, 28, and Depp, 51!
The source also revealed with a fall wedding expected, Depp has worked hard to join the people he loves the most.
“Johnny has gotten in the habit of setting up remote weekend getaways with Amber and the kids, and usually he will lease a helicopter and have them all ferried to a remote location or resort in Southern California,” the source said of the A-list stalwart.
Recently, Depp has been filming his Whitey Bulger biopic in Boston while Heard has been shooting The Adderall Diaries in New York.
“When they’re not on set, Johnny stays close to town, but he doesn’t just want to do the usual activities with the kids like their mom Vanessa does during the week,” the source said. “He’s very much about showing them an adventure and a good time, and Amber has been 100% behind this all the way.”
