My Cinema has just announced the new film Zeroville directed by James Franco, written by Paul Felton and Ian Olds, and based on the novel by Steve Erickson. The film is produced by Michael Mendelsohn, Vince Jolivette and Caroline Aragon. It stars James Franco, Megan Fox, Seth Rogen, Joey King, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jacki Weaver.
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”) in his interactions with the world. With a tattoo of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor as they appear in A Place in the Sun (a film that plays an important role in the plot) on his shaved head, he makes an impression on the people around him. Soon breaking into film as a designer and eventually a film editor, Vikar (as he is nicknamed) begins a dreamlike journey into the world of films that eventually ends in tragedy and almost horrific discovery.
Zeroville will hit theaters on September 6 in the U.S. and in Canada. Are you guys interested in the film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or tweet us @vitalthrillscom.
