When you hear James Franco and Jonah Hill are starring in a movie together chances are some cheap comedy comes to mind. But beside their comedic talents, they’re terrific actors capable of leading any drama (see Palo Alto or 127 Hours for more James Franco action). They’re a part of True Story, a film based on New York Times journo Michael Finkel (Hill) as he forms a bond with an accused murdered Christian Longo (Franco).
Since this is the truest story of all true stories, I can’t wait to see what comes of this. It’s quite a great first impression. True Story will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, but will be available for everyone April 10th next year.[via Yahoo]
