When you hear that Jonah Hill and James Franco are doing a movie together, a great comedy probably comes to mind, right? Well usually that’s the case, but not this time. This time they are teaming up for a drama/mystery/thriller based on a true story, intrigued yet? Below you can check out a new set of images just released for True Story.
Many don’t know this, but both Hill and Franco are incredibly talented drama actors, both being nominated for Oscars in the past. So what am I saying? You should be damn excited to see this movie.
Here’s a synopsis:
The relationship between journalist Michael Finkel and Christian Longo, an FBI Most Wanted List murderer who for years lived outside the U.S. under Finkel’s name.
Hill is in the role of Michael Finkel, while Franco is playing Christian Longo. You can see them both below, as well as Felicity Jones who is playing Hill’s characters girlfriend.
I for one am really looking forward to this. I do enjoy watching Hill and Franco in comedy, I mean, who doesn’t? But I always look forward to something dramatic from them; one because they are so great at it, and two because it happens on just occasionally happens. Then you add a damn juicy story like this one and it just becomes a lock.
True Story hits theaters on April 10th, 2015. Directed by Rupert Goold starring Jonah Hill, James Franco, and Felicity Jones.
