Everybody Joins The Cast Of James Franco’s Next Movie Zeroville

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Franco’s next filmmaking project, Zeroville, began its journey back in 2011 when the director-actor-writer-poet-artist optioned the rights to Steve Erickson’s novel. Alas, with so many ventures cluttering Franco’s plate it’s easy to see how this zany caper hasn’t received much notice. That is until today, as Screen Daily has learned that the film has already begun shooting – and there’s a ton of big names attached.

In addition to the main man himself nabbing a starring role, Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King and Horatio Sanz have also signed on to star. The basic premise revolves around a film nerd who relocates to Hollywood in the 1960s to be closer to the ‘biz. However, he “enters a world of sex, drugs, rock and roll, the decline of the movie studios and the rise of independent renegade directors. »

Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell And More Join James Franco In ‘Zeroville’

20 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The cast on the in-production James Franco starrer Zeroville – the film that features Franco with tattooed, shaved head – has just got a hell of a lot bigger. Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Dave Franco, Jacki Weaver, Horatio Sanz, Joey King, and Megan Fox have all joined the movie, which is based on Steve Erickson novel that was first published in 2007.

The film revolves around Franco’s character; a movie fan who travels to Hollywood in the 1960s.

Rogen will apparently play a young John Milius-type character in the film (named Viking Man), but we’ve not been told who any of the other new additions will be playing.

Here’s the full plot, courtesy of WikiPedia:

Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride and More Join James Franco’s Zeroville

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in September, James Franco hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival rocking a shaved head with a tattoo of A Place in the Sun’s Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor on the back of it.  It wasn’t some oddball stunt like what Shia Labeouf pulled at Berlin, but rather, while attending the festival to debut The Sound and the Fury and also to accept his Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker award, he decided to get a little work done.  Franco took the opportunity to shoot some shots for his next directorial endeavor, a film called Zeroville. But even though Franco started knocking off shots last month, his co-cast is first being announced now.  It’s being reported that Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King and Horatio Sanz will all join him in the film.  Hit the jump for more on Zeroville. »

Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco And More Join James Franco’s 'Zeroville'

22 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's not easy to keep track of the 1001 things James Franco is up to at any moment, so you probably forgot that in 2011, he optioned the rights to "Zeroville" by Steve Erickson. Well, Franco surely didn't forget this was on his To Do list, as the project is up and running, and he's using his extensive Rolodex to fill out the cast.  Screen Daily reports that Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King and Horatio Sanz have joined "Zeroville," which is now shooting with Franco directing and, of course, leading the film. And it has a meta flavor to it, it's a movie about the movies, with the story revolving around a film-obsessed architecture student who is mistaken for one of the perpetrators of the Manon murders, and has the pictures of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift from "A Place In The Sun »

James Franco's 'Zeroville' Lands Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen & Tons More

24 October 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you hadn't heard, James Franco is directing and starring in an adaptation of Zeroville, the 2007 novel of the same name by Steve Erickson. The story follows a naive, alienated young man who moves to Hollywood in the 1960s, driven by his love and obsession for the movies, and meeting various filmmaking types like John Milius and Martin Scorsese. But he ends up getting caught up in the world of sex, drugs and rock and roll. It's a must-read for any cinephile, and the film is already in production right now. So far we hadn't heard any cast members beyond Franco taking the lead role (he shaved his head for it), but that changes today with a report from ScreenDaily revealing that some of Franco's best buddies are on board too. Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and brother Dave Franco are all starring in the film, »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Time Travels From December To February

15 October 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In an extremely unsurprising turn of events, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has been shifted from its previous Christmas release date to February 20th of next year. The holiday season is always tremendously crowded at the box office, and the competition is so steep this year that the raunchy sequel wouldn’t have stood an ice cube’s chance in hell at the box office.

Clark Duke, Rob Cordrry, Craig Robinson, Chevy Chase and Collette Wolfe all return for the follow-up, in which Lou (Cordrry) becomes the father of the Internet and is shot by an unknown assailant from the future, leading the gang to jump into the time machine to save their friend. John Cusack is not returning, and Parks and Recreation‘s Adam Scott will be taking on a new role to fill in for him. Community‘s Gillian Jacobs also has a part.

'Independence Day 2' and 'Hitman: Agent 47' Get New Release Dates

14 October 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox made a few tweaks to its schedule today, shifting Independence Day 2 from the crowded July 1, 2016 release date to June 24, 2016, while moving Hitman: Agent 47 up nearly six months from February 27, 2015 to August 28, 2015.

Independence Day 2, which is reportedly bringing back Jeff Goldblum to star, would have faced Sony's Angry Birds, Disney's The Bfg and Warner Bros.' Tarzan on July 1, but now it only has to contend with Universal's Untitled Mummy Reboot one week earlier. No story details have been given for Independence Day 2, which will not feature the return of Will Smith .

Hitman: Agent 47, which stars Rupert Friend as the title character, will now face the Dimension Films thriller Regression on August 28, 2015, instead of going up against Warner Bros.' Focus and The Transporter Legacy on February 27, 2015. The plot is based on the video game of the same name, which follows a sole assassin who works for a sinister corporation. »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Skips The Interview, Time Travels to February

14 October 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This isn't all that surprising.  Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is now foregoing its original December 25th, 2014 release date and moving to February 20th.  This makes sense for a few reasons, the first of which is that it needs to get out of the way of Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview, which is shaping up to be something of a comedic juggernaut (at least in terms of my perception - it feels like awareness is high for that one).  Also telling?  My first thought when I saw this news was, "that was supposed to come out on Christmas?"  It doesn't feel like they've been aggressively marketing the movie (aside from the trailer) and I feel like February is safer ground for this franchise anyway. Paramount also moved Scouts vs. Zombies from that date and placed it on October 30th, 2015, also a move of confidence in that horror comedy it looks like. »
