7 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fresh from almost bringing the world to the end with The Interview, James Franco has jumped straight back on the cinematic horse with the release of the trailer for True Story. Jonah Hill is also featured prominently in the clip, which shows the pair acting incredibly serious for a change. It looks promising.

Jonah Hill and James Franco go dramatic in Sundance trailer ‘True Story’

9 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A selection in this year’s Sundance Film Festival, rookie filmmaker Rupert Goold’s film True Story tells the true story of journalist Mike Finkel and his interview subject, Christian Longo. In 2002, Finkel was fired from The New York Times for fabricating a story. Shortly after, he learned of a serial killer, Longo, who posed as Finkel when killing his wife and children. Finkel then took to interviewing Longo as an opportunity for a second chance. Jonah Hill stars as Finkel interviewing James Franco’s Longo, and Goold’s film looks to be a tense journalistic thriller that doesn’t look to be funny at all. Felicity Jones also stars. Watch the trailer below:

True Story Trailer Arrives

14 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With his constant barrage of side projects in film and on paper, it’s a wonder that James Franco has time to appear in other people’s movies. But here he is in a based-on-truth story, which sees him acting opposite pal Jonah Hill in a tale that will see neither of them using their comedy chops. With the film headed to the Sundance Film Festival, the first trailer for True Story has arrived.Adapted by Dave Kajganich from Michael Finkel’s memoir, the plot finds Hill playing Finkel, a New York Times writer who, in 2002, was fired by the paper after his bosses announced he had falsified part of an investigative report. With his girlfriend (Felicity Jones) upset and no work prospects, Finkel suddenly discovered a possible path to redemption.But this is no ordinary tale of someone working their way back into everyone’s good graces: it turns »

Ten Best: Phil’s Top 10 Movies of 2014

16 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Well it’s that time of year again – the one where websites across the globe churn out Top 10 list after top ten list. So why should we be any different?! Yet whilst we may be following the predictable end of year lists, I can guarantee that my list is anything but predictable, featuring films from across the globe: including the Us, Canada, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and even good old Blighty!

This year more than ever there has been film after film that knocked it out of the park for me – which is why my Top 10 list has Two sections: the Top 10 and then the pick of 35(!) more brilliant movies (I would have loved this list to be a Top 45, honestly). So what’s my criteria? Well it has to be a movie I’ve seen this year, one that was released this year, i.e. making its UK debut, »

'True Story' Trailer Starring James Franco and Jonah Hill

18 December 2014 12:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first look photo that debuted earlier this week, Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the trailer for True Story ahead of its debut at the Sundance Film Festival next month. This Is the End stars Jonah Hill and James Franco reunite for a gripping drama that is, naturally, based on an incredible true story that puts a whole new spin on "identity theft."

Jonah Hill stars as New York Times journalist Rupert Goold, whose career at the newspaper came to an end after he falsified accounts in a story about impoverished teenagers in West Africa. It's worth noting that Finkel's admission didn't quite make huge headlines, since one week later, the New York Times was embroiled in the Jayson Blair plagiarism scandal. James Franco stars as Christian Longo, an FBI Most Wanted List murderer who for years lived outside the U.S. under Finkel's name. After he is imprisoned for killing his wife, »

James Franco Steals Jonah Hill’s Identity In First Trailer For True Story

18 December 2014 11:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Controversy surrounding James Franco’s doomed political comedy, The Interview, continues to cause waves across the industry. With Sony’s decision to yank the movie from theaters, interest in the actor is at an all-time high. To capitalize on his new-found infamy, attention has turned to his next release, True Story, as the trailer for the Sundance flick has just landed.

Set around a more straight-faced interview, True Story is based on a real memoir that caught the eye of director Rupert Goold. The story revolves around Franco’s shady character, Christian Longo. Convicted for murdering his family, he goes on the run and winds up assuming the identity of a well-know New York Times reporter named Michael Finkel, played by Jonah Hill. After his capture in Mexico by the FBI, he refuses to talk to anyone. Except Finkel, who’s just been fired. It’s an utterly bizarre premise »

First Trailer For True Story

18 December 2014 11:22 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The last time we saw Jonah Hill and James Franco was in the end of the world comedy This is the End. So it should be quite the experience watching the first trailer for Rupert Goold's True Story, as the two are flexing their dramatic muscles in an extremely impressive way. They both have proven themselves as dramatic actors, and they seem well served here by a compelling real life story, that promises so many twists and turns. Released: April 10th 2015 (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: When disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) meets accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco) – who has taken on Finkel’s identity – his investigation morphs into an unforgettable game of cat-and-mouse.  Based on actual events, Finkel’s relentless pursuit of Longo’s true story encompasses murder, love, deceit and redemption. »

Jonah Hill and James Franco go serious in ’True Story' trailer

18 December 2014 11:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jonah Hill and James Franco are both part of Judd Apatow’s comedy crew, together taking lowbrow to new heights (depths?) over the last decade. But they’re also Academy Award nominees; Hill being a two-timer, earning props for "Moneyball" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," and Franco earning a nod for his leading work in "127 Hours." So why don’t they ever act like it when they’re together? Well, now they do, thanks to the cold-as-ice, non-fiction drama "True Story." Just in time to bring audiences down from their "Serial" high, Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for theater director Rupert Goold's feature directorial debut, based on journalist Michael Finkel’s 2005 autobiographical tome "True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa." Hill stars as Finkel, who fell from his job at the New York Times after fabricating stories while reporting from West Africa. Looking for new opportunities, »

Jonah Hill & James Franco in Trailer for Sundance Selection 'True Story'

18 December 2014 10:47 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I want to tell you my side of this." Fox Searchlight has premiered a trailer for Rupert Goold's film True Story, starring Jonah Hill and James Franco as adversaries of sorts. Based on the real life memoirs of NY Times reporter Michael Finkel, played by Jonah Hill, the film follows the interactions between Finkel and accused killer Christian Longo, played by James Franco. For years, Longo lived using Finkel's identity, and even submitted writing work under his name. In addition to Hill and Franco, who look quite serious in this, the cast includes Felicity Jones, Ethan Suplee and Gretchen Mol. This actually looks really, really good. I love the intensity and some of the dialogue is on fire, this just shot to the top of my list for Sundance. Here's the first official trailer for Rupert Goold's True Story, from Yahoo (found via The Film Stage): Synopsis »

First True Story Trailer: Jonah Hill and James Franco Go Dramatic in Dark Thriller

18 December 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight has released the first True Story trailer for director Rupert Goold's upcoming drama.  Based on real events, the film stars Jonah Hill as disgraced New York Times journalist Michael Finkel, who strikes up a head-spinning relationship with accused murderer Christian Longo, played by James Franco.  After watching them play off each other in such hilarious fashion onscreen in This Is the End, I'll admit there's a bit of whiplash in seeing Hill and Franco play opposite each other in something as dark and serious as this.  That said, both actors have separately proven themselves to be formidable dramatic talents and the story here is incredibly compelling, so I'm really looking forward to catching this one next month at Sundance. Hit the jump to watch the True Story trailer.  The film also stars Felicity JonesTrue Story will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and opens in theaters April 10, 2015. Via Yahoo! »

Watch: James Franco And Jonah Hill Tell A 'True Story' In First Trailer For Real Life Drama

18 December 2014 9:53 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Right now, whether truth or fiction, there's no story unfolding in Hollywood more captivating than that surrounding "The Interview," but it seems James Franco likes a good real life yarn. Next month, he'll hit the Sundance Film Festival with two movies based on true stories: the Gus Van Sant-produced "I Am Michael" and the Brad Pitt-produced "True Story." The latter's first trailer show's a different side to the actor. Co-starring Jonah Hill and Felicity Jones, "True Story" is based on the memoir by former New York Times journalist Michael Finkel, regarding his crossing paths with one Christian Longo, a wanted man on the FBI Top Ten list who had murdered his family. Things get even more bizarre when it's revealed that Longo was living under the name "Michael Finkel." While we're used to seeing both performing on the more extreme end of the comedic spectrum, it'll be interesting to watch Franco and Hill. »

Ivan Reitman’s original Ghostbusters 3 title and casting choices revealed

17 December 2014 2:33 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we heard some plot details for Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female Ghostbusters remake, and now the latest round of Sony leaks has given us some insight into Ivan Reitman’s original plans for Ghostbusters III, which stem from an email last year from the director, which was sent to Sony co-chariman Amy Pascal and concerned the second draft of the script.

Titled Ghostbusters: Alive Again, the film would have focussed on Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) passing the torch to a younger team of Ghostbusters which included ‘Chris’, the son of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman (who is assumed to be Oscar, Venkman’s son with Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett).

For the role of Chris, Reitman said that he had met with Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) but stated that he was “unsure” about the casting. »

Title and Casting Details on the Cancelled Ghostbusters 3 Project

17 December 2014 7:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before Paul Feig came around to reboot the Ghostbusters franchise for a new generation and launch a whole new franchise, there was a direct sequel to the original films that was in development for years. That project will never happen at this point, but some details have surfaced on what that sequel would have entailed.

Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3) completed a second Ghostbusters 3 draft. The film's producer, Ivan Reitman, who was attached to direct the film at the time, sent an email to Sony Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal that contained the second draft, and it reveals the title of the movie and his plan for the cast.

There's not much revealed about the plot, but it would have centered on Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) passing the franchise off to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. Sadly, a month after this email was sent, »
