While James Franco is currently in the news for a collaboration with another regular cohort, Seth Rogen, this one with a now very serious Jonah Hill looks like stirring stuff. 

Hill plays a former New York Times journalist who was impersonated by a man accused of killing his entire family - Franco. Yep, it's based on a true story. 

It will premiere at Sundance in January, so if it's any use expect the hype train to begin rolling then.
