Jonah Hill and James Franco Star in a Cat-and-Mouse Thriller, Seriously

I don't know about this one. While I continue to be fascinated by James Franco as a concept (though he's widly inconsistent), I feel like I'm the last soul on Earth who Jonah Hill hasn't hypnotized into believing he's a great actor. So, when I first heard about the two of them teaming up for the cat and mouse thriller, TRUE STORY, my first reaction was..."oh." That's really all I've got. 

But maybe you'll love it, so I figured I'd share it with you guys. It's based on the book written by the lead character (played by Hill). Here's a little more about it:

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.

Yeah, I've got nothing. But here's something: one of the writers of TRUE STORY is David Kajganich, who is also helped pen the upcoming remake of Stephen King's It (directed by Cary Fukunaga). Also, Brad Pitt co-executive produced the project. Take from all of that what you will. I've still got, "oh." 

The trailer is set to drop later this week. For now, here are two more images from the film:

TRUE STORY comes to select theaters April 10, 2015.
