James showed up at a recent interview holding a Stephenie Meyer book and claiming it was “for a project.” Is he going to join Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in the fourth Twilight installment?

How do you feel about THIS, BFFs? It’s very possible that James Franco could be joining your favorite vampire and werewolf hotties in Breaking Dawn!

During an interview with Esquire, the 32-year-old Eat, Pray, Love star was caught holding a copy of Twilight, admitting to the magazine that “It’s for a project” although he does add that said project is “way, way off” and only “something I’m thinking about.”

While it doesn’t necessarily mean that James is joining the cast – although he doesn’t have any projects currently in production — his comedy, Ricky Stanicky, is still being written and the drama Maladies begins filming mid-December, – it IS possible, given that Breaking Dawn I & 2 starts production in November and will go until April 2012.

Even better? He’s a fan of the series, written by super scribe Stephenie Meyer. “It’s crazy how much sexual tension there is,” he says. “It just builds and builds. I mean it never stops. It’s sort of explosive by the end. Crazy. Like they’ll blow up with it. And of course, they don’t. Which is the point too, I guess.”
