James Franco & Jonah Hill Starring in Brad Pitt's 'True Story'

Jonah Hill is teaming up with his Moneyball co-star Brad Pitt for the upcoming film True Story.

Brad will be working behind the camera this time, though, with his Plan B company producing the film, which is the big screen adaptation of a memoir by journalist Michael Finkel, according to Deadline.

Jonah will play Michael, who was fired by the New York Times for falsifying information in an article.

He then scores an exclusive interview with Christian Longo (played by James Franco) wanted by the FBI for killing his family – and a fugitive who had been living in Mexico using Michael‘s identity.

The interview gives the real Michael a chance to redeem his name and career.

Good for Jonah. keep mixing it up. Nice to see James doing a film that is more serious.

Brad’s Plan B is really doing some interesting projects/ Bravo Brad and DeDe

cool brad is directing now like angelina

Did you enjoy those lovely cupcakes Jonah?
Mr wants to be considered as a serious actor now so he lost a few pounds and his sense of humor in the process but glad to see the chin is still there though.

I’ll be right there watching it, anything with Brad acting or directing sounds awsome.

# 6

Jonah Hill did a great job in Moneyball.

# 7

How cool. Brad is a loyal friend. He is always looking out for the people he knows and cares about.

# 8

I guess people don’t read..

Brad is PRODUCING.. not directing or staring it this. He has said over and over that Directing is not for him

@busted: You mean apart from James Franco playing roles in James Dean, Howl, 127 Hours, The Broken Tower and soon to be Tar.

Spending time as Director also focusing on bringing great poets to life, that kind of serious. He’s one of the most serious Actor/Director’s, I know for his age. He mixes it up from time to time but no actor his generation does what he does that great especially when it comes to Bio pictures.

I’m looking forward to this, it should be interesting. Brad is not Directing but his company is producing this, if they get the money to make it. Should be no problem with the talents involved.

Does anybody else “feel” an emotional bond from Jonah to brad. he seems like he fell hard for him (not that i blame him)

for me angelina is joking no one thought that bachelor parties start so maybe ange and brad marry without announcing and we are giving supporting evidence; it.
maybe it’s the last time he does something wild before marriage

This upcoming film project produced by Brad sounds really good! I can’t wait to see it!..
