Actor James Franco Set to Portray Richard Ramirez ‘The Night Stalker’ Serial Killer

The very busy actor James Franco is set to star and make his directorial debut with the movie version of ‘The Night Stalker’. 

The movie is based on author Phillip Carlo’s book on Richard Ramirez who was found guilt in California of 13 murders, 5 attempted murders and 11 sexual assaults, though authorities believe there were many more victims.

During the mid-80’s Ramirez left southern California in a virtual lock-down due to the fear he instilled in the community with his ritualistic murders and satanic messages.  Ramirez is currently on death row.
