My Cinema has debuted the Zeroville trailer and poster, previewing the new film directed by James Franco, written by Paul Felton and Ian Olds, and based on the novel by Steve Erickson. It stars Franco, Megan Fox, Seth Rogen, Joey King, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jacki Weaver.
Franco plays Vikar, a lost soul journeying through Hollywood 1969, a land of myths, beauty and monsters. The studio system is in decay, and a new generation of brash filmmakers are on the rise. With his shaved head marked by a tattoo from his favorite film, 1951’s A Place in the Sun, Vikar is a bizarre presence even amid the dreamers and players.
He finds work first building sets, then as an apprentice editor obsessed with wielding the power of moving images. As his involvement in the creative process deepens, so does his fascination with a tragic screen goddess named Soledad (Fox). Together they discover just how hard it is to live in the blurred boundary between reality and illusion.
Zeroville is produced by Michael Mendelsohn, Vince Jolivette and Caroline Aragon. It is scheduled to open in U.S. and Canada theaters on September 6th.
