Zeroville is an adaptation of the Steve Erikson 2007 novel set in the late 1960s.
He travels to Hollywood and finds himself swept up into the film business after being mistaken for a member of the Charles Manson Family.
Jacki Weaver was recently added to the lineup.
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. »

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:
Ike Jerome, a 24-year-old architecture student inspired by the few films he has seen, rides the bus into Hollywood. Jerome is almost autistic (later, his friend dubs him a “cineautistic »

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. »

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 »

The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I’m a huge Tmnt fan. If you visit this site regularly you’ll know that. The original 1990 live action film is one my all time favourites. Faithful, funny, and surprisingly adult; it’s highly under appreciated.
Putting aside my love for that film, there are »

Back in 2011, Fox, 28, and Franco, 36, teamed up for the environmental documentary Na Nai'a Legend of the Dolphins, but we're pretty sure this isn't a sequel to that doc. What seems more likely is that the two are shooting scenes for Franco's new 10-episode AOL series, Making a Scene »
