Jonah Hill & James Franco Team-Up For A “True Story”

Jonah Hill and James Franco raised their share of comedic mayhem with This is The End, but now they’ve reunited for the upcoming drama True Story.

The narrative, based on journalist (and former New York Times magazine writer) Michael Finkel’s memoir True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa, centers on Finkel’s (Jonah Hill) relationship with accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco).

While Finkel suffered embarrassment after being accused of falsifying elements of an investigative article, his life is thrown for a deeper loop after Longo finds his way into Finkel’s already precarious universe.

The project marks the feature film debut of Rupert Goold (The Hollow Crown), who also co-wrote the screenplay with David Kajganich.
