James Franco Taps ‘Child of God’ Star for ‘In Dubious Battle’ (Exclusive)

24 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Up-and-comer Scott Haze is reteaming with his “Child of God” director James Franco for Franco’s next directorial outing, “In Dubious Battle.”

The pic’s ensemble already includes Franco, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride. Ambi Group is financing the film and producing with Rabbit Bandini Productions and That’s Hollywood Pictures Productions.

The original novel by John Steinbeck portrays the struggle between labor and capital in 1930s America as close to all-out warfare. Published in 1936, “In Dubious Battle” is considered Steinbeck’s first major work. Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck later continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures as he »

Comedy Movies at SXSW: Who Might Become the Next Breakout Star

20 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Amy Schumer Nick Kroll Danny Cho Comedies dominated SXSW’s studio premieres this year, with Get Hard, Spy, and a not-quite-finished cut of Trainwreck all making their first appearances at the festival. In the small venues, away from the red carpet of Austin’s historic Paramount Theater, festival-goers got their laughs from indie films, some with familiar faces and some with names we were hearing for the very first time. Past SXSW programming built an audience for then-unknowns like Lena Dunham and Danny McBride, so we always keep a lookout at SXSW for who might be the next breakout comedy star. The most obvious candidate is Amy Schumer, whose Comedy Central television show has expanded her audience beyond...

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff join James Franco's In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson and Zach Braff are the latest stars to join James Franco's film In Dubious Battle.

Franco will direct As I Lay Dying writer Matt Rager's adaptation of John Steinbeck's politically-charged 1936 novel.

In Dubious Battle will chronicle an activist becoming involved with California's contentious labour movement during the 1930s.

Joining Hutcherson and Braff as the newest additions to the film's cast are Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love…), Ahna O'Reilly (The Help) and Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga).

Franco has amassed an all-star cast for the political drama, including John Savage, Nat Wolff, Bryan Cranston, Danny McBride, Selena Gomez, Robert Duvall and Ed Harris.

In Dubious Battle will be shot on location in Georgia, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That's Hollywood Pictures is expected to release In Dubious Battle later this year. »

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff And More Join James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One the perks of being a producer-director-writer-actor is the sheer quantity of circles that the multi-hyphenate tag permits you entry into. For James Franco, this means he meets a lot of people. Moreso than any other non-celebrity might in a regular day. By that rationale, it’s probably a lot easier to cast movies seeing as he knows everybody. Applying that conclusion to today’s piece of news on his latest effort, In Dubious Battle seems to stick; he really does know everybody because everybody’s in the movie.

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly are the latest additions to a cast that’s already bulging with starry names. This new roster join Nat Wolff, who signed up two days ago, and the previously-announced Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Danny McBride, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Franco himself.

Nat Wolff Lands Lead In James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

16 March 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nat Wolff, who stole the world’s hearts as the cute sidekick in The Fault In Our Stars, is gearing up for another literary adaptation. In addition to his second John Green adaptation Paper Towns – due for release this summer – Wolff has signed up for a part in James Franco’s next movie, In Dubious Battle.

The film takes place in the 1930s and follows the story of Jim Nolan (Wolff).

Wolff joins a starry ensemble that includes Franco, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Danny McBride, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris and Bryan Cranston.

This marks the second collaboration for the actor and director, who worked together on 2013’s Palo Alto. While that was based on Franco’s own collection of short stories, this project will return focus »

Nat Wolff Joins In Dubious Battle

16 March 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

13 February 2015 12:47 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you've recently wondered what all your favorite actors have been up to, turns out they were all working on Cameron Crowe's new romantic comedy Aloha.

There, he tries to reconnect with an old flame (McAdams) while at the same time begins to fall for a young, overly enthusiastic Air Force pilot (Stone) assigned to keep an eye on him.

The plot seems to just be a backdrop to showcase some really lovely performances by a painfully adorable Stone, a ridiculously gorgeous McAdams, a silently stoic Krasinski and Baldwin, who's basically just channeling his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy »

Say 'Aloha' to the First Trailer for Cameron Crowe's New Movie (Video)

12 February 2015 3:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sometimes you just need a little chatty, whimsical Cameron Crowe romantic comedy in your life. The first trailer for Crowe's new movie, "Aloha," certainly demonstrates that.

Originally called "Deep Tiki," the film was ready to go a few years ago with a much different cast (led by Ben Stiller), before being reassembled with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone in the primary roles. The film concerns a disgraced defense contractor who is sent to Hawaii to supervise a satellite array and, while there, true to form, falls in love. The ridiculously starry cast also includes Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel. There will also, presumably, be well-known pop songs expertly placed for maximum emotional devastation.

What's interesting about the film, which at one point also went by the name "Volcano Romance," is that there was, at least initially, an element of magic and mysticism »

First Trailer For Cameron Crowe's Aloha

12 February 2015 12:39 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Kicking off with one of the best Alec Baldwin meltdowns ever (it's all about the Flava Flav reference), the first trailer for Cameron Crowe's Aloha is here, bringing together an impressive ensemble cast, including the aforementioned Baldwin brother, Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Bill Murray, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, and John Krasinski. The story follows Cooper's military contractor as he returns to Hawaii, the site of his greatest career triumphs, and reconnects with his ex-girlfriend (McAdams), while unexpectedly falling for the Air Force watch dog assigned to him (Stone). As you would expect from something from Crowe, this is incredibly likable from the opening frame, promising a sweet and funny story at the heart of it all. Released: 29th May (U.S.)/ 4th September (Irl/U.K.) »

Bradley Cooper — a.k.a. Mr. Cool Guy Sexy Pants, according to Alec Baldwin — heads to Hawaii in the trailer for Cameron Crowe's Aloha. There he joins Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Baldwin, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and a decapitated Santa Claus for what looks like a pseudo-believable, military-tinged rom-com about people who suck at communicating and rock at crying. It's unclear if all of the watery eyes are for Santa or someone else, so we'll have to wait till May 29 to find out for sure. »
