All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• James Franco continues to provide evidence that he lives in a world where there are more than 24 hours in a day. According to Deadline, the crazy busy thespian has added "The Grace That Keeps This World" to his insane schedule, a family drama co-starring Brit Marling and Glenn Close that follows a father and his sons as they prepare for the upcoming hunting season.

• Michelle Williams, whom we haven't seen on the big screen since "My Week With Marilyn," is in talks to star in "Suite Francaise" for English director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess"). Williams would be playing, according to Variety, "a spirited young woman in occupied France who falls for a German officer and must choose between love and her country." She'll probably find a way to choose both.

• The con is on with Ben Affleck! Deadline reports that the "Argo" man is in talks to star in "Focus," the tale of a grifter who falls in love with a female up-and-comer — a recipe for heartbreak when one's in the business of cheating and lying. Get More »

• Every movie becomes better if Sam Rockwell is in it, which means "Why Now" is destined for greatness. Screen Daily reports that the "Seven Psychopaths" star has joined the cast of the indie comedy alongside Marisa Tomei and Brian Geraghty.

• Mrs. Robinson, eat your heart out! Broadway World reports that Decepticon co-ed Isabel Lucas is set to turn up the heat in "Careful What You Wish For," a "Basic Instinct"-esque thriller about a high school student's affair with an older woman that ends up having devastating consequences (as these things often do).
