February 29, 2012

Jonah Hill and James Franco are attached to star in Rupert Goold‘s “True Story” reports Deadline.

An adaptation of journalist Mike Finkel’s memior in which Hill would play the NY Times Magazine  writer who was fired from the publication for reportedly falsifying information. Around the same time Christian Longo (Franco), a killer on the FBI‘s Ten Most Wanted List, was captured in Mexico and claimed he’d been living under the identity of Finkel in order to evade capture. The real Finkel sees a chance at redemption when he learns he is the only journalist that Longo will talk to.

Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner will produce the pic.

The pic is Hill’s 2nd dramatic role after Moneyball with Pitt for which he got an Oscar nomination.
