James Franco and Jonah Hill will be starring in a new film together, only this time it’s a pretty serious one.
True Story is based on chillingly true events (obviously), and will see Franco play Christian Longo, a man who was on the FBI’s most wanted list for murdering his wife and children in 2001. Longo went by the fake name of Michael Finkel, who was actually a journalist for the New York Times during the time of Longo’s crimes. The real Finkel is played by Jonah Hill.
This is a big change in roles compared to what we’re usually used to from the pair, especially as their last big film together was the hilarious and kind-of-original ‘This Is The End’. We’re looking forward to seeing the pair bounce off each other in a serious way for a change.
The film will premier at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and will be in US cinemas April 10th.
