Jonah Hill - Jonah Hill And James Franco To Star In True Story

Jonah Hill and James Franco are teaming up for 'True Story'.

The 'Superbad' star and the '127 Hours' actor will appear in the movie adaptation of Michael Finkel's memoir which will see Jonah play the writer who establishes a connection with captured criminal Christian Longo (James) after it is revealed he had been using Finkel's identity while on the run.

When Finkel's employers The New York Times fired him the day after Longo's arrest amid claims he had falsified parts of a recent investigative article, the writer tried to redeem himself through interviews with Longo, who refused to speak to any other journalist.

Jonah's 'Moneyball' co-star Brad Pitt will produce the movie through his Plan B production company while Rupert Goold is set to direct.

Jonah will be happy to reunite with Brad for a movie as he previously revealed they hit it off on the set of baseball movie 'Moneyball' for which they both received Academy Award nominations.

He said: ''I think he and I are really close in the movie. The movie is really the two of us playing off of each other a majority of the time, so if that chemistry wasn't there between us, I think the movie would have completely failed.

''So I think we both knew that going in, and I think we both happened to like each other a lot.''
