James Franco has joined forces with artist Daniel Arsham for the second video of his nine-part series, Future Relic.

The series portrays Arsham's concerns for the future of Earth and its destruction. The Film Noir piece features Franco as a laboratory worker and was shot in Arsham's Brooklyn studio.

Arsham said of the series: "I try to look at the world as a repository of antiquated artifacts and experiences, all of them worth preserving."
