James Franco and Kalup Linzy

Last week actor-writer-student-artist-essayist James Franco and video/performance artist Kalup Linzy rocked Webster Hall during the second annual Rob Pruitt Art Awards, and now the duo have formed a bona fide group. The already well-liked Facebook page for Kalup and Franco announces their plans for the near future:

In 2011, expect an album, music videos, performances, and production on Linzy’s feature film debut in which Franco will co-star and co-produce with his production company Rabbit Bandini Productions. Where dreams, art, music, films, soap operas, real life, and performance art collide. Kalup and Franco.

Video footage of what this collision will look like, after the jump. Kalup and Franco.
