The first trailer for True Story is here and after the controversy over The Interview, James Franco is probably eager for the discussion (film wise) to change.
Franco stars with Jonah Hill (recently seen uttering those 22 Jump Street quotes) in the, well, True Story of disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, who was fired for making up part of a story on African teenagers.
He would leave the paper and New York and try to find himself. What he found... well, it found him.
Franco is Christian Longo, a man charged with murdering his wife and three kids. When he’s arrested, he says he is Finkel. Yeah, that.
Longo then contacts Finkel and the two forge a friendship that would turn out to be quite explosive before all is said and done.
Look for True Story in theaters in January.
