Here’s a first official look at Zeroville, the upcoming drama comedy movie directed by James Franco and starring James Franco, Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Jackie Weaver, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Joey King:
“A proto-punk Forrest Gump comes to Hollywood….
Join VIKAR (James Franco), a wide-eyed innocent in love with the movies, on one wicked trip to the
heart of a pulsating, kaleidoscopic Hollywood. Naive newcomer to the City of Angels, carrying
nothing but his ‘outsider’ past and a huge tattoo of Montgomery Clift & Elizabeth Taylor inked on
his shaved skull; driven by the allure of cinema to the glittering temptations of Zeroville; a town
where anything goes.
Encounter the parasites, the punks, the wannabes, the power-brokers and the crazies: meet VIKING
MAN (Seth Rogen) – gatekeeper to all the right parties, a cigar-chomping surf hippie; Vikar’s
eccentric Hollywood guide.
You’ll encounter: the livewire super-agent RONDELL (Will Ferrell, uncredited); foul-mouthed
industry veteran DOTTY (Jacki Weaver); the sinister FINANCIER (Danny McBride); sexy femme fatale
SOLEDAD (Megan Fox) – a haunted ‘dame’, the electric charge to trigger Vikar’s breath-taking dive
into the captivating world where movies are made.
Profoundly magical, funny, unsettling, and gorgeous – a love letter to Los Angeles and provocative
satire of America’s fascination with itself, its cult of celebrity; a vision of the death of Old Hollywood.”
The film sure can boast one impressive cast. And judging from the pictures we’re in for one crazy ride! Am impatient to see the trailer.
Still no official release date.
Stay tuned for more updates.
