James Franco is a busy and multi-talented dude. He will soon be starring in Palo Alto (2014), an adaptation of his own collection of short stories directed by Gia Coppola. Films based on short story collections seem to miss the mark a fair bit, but this seems to have a fair bit of promise. I am a fan of Franco and Emma Roberts has impressed me in a couple of things as well. The trailer looks good and it may manage to bring something original to the teen, coming of age film which would be really refreshing. Who knows how it will turn out, but at this stage, I am pretty keen. Thoughts all?

Super excited for this film! My most anticipated right now. If you’re as excited as me I recommend seeking out Gia’s short “Non Plus One” with Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst it’s really good 🙂
Awesome, thanks for the tip off. I was not really familiar with Gia, so will see if I can track that down as a little intro. Much appreciated.
Oh, come on!!!
LOL, sorry, but it did nothing for me.
As a Franco fan, I’m slacking. I know absolutely zero about this, thanks greatly for bringing it to my attention! I dig the trailer, but I think I like the song they use in it even more. Gotta look into who that is. 🙂
Glad I could bring this to your attention man.
I really didn’t enjoy the book that this is based on, but the trailer looks really promising. Looking forward to seeing it!
Yeah I have not heard of anyone who enjoyed the book as yet. I am a big fan of Franco, but I haven’t actually been bothered to pick it up.
I read one of Franco’s short story collections and it was the worst things I’ve ever read. However, this actually looks alright. Emma Roberts looks like she’s on top form in this one.
Haha. Everyone is hating on Franco’s short stories. I never got around to checking them out. Maybe not such a bad thing.
My only concern with this one is Gia Coppola…
Yeah fair enough. A very inexperienced choice.
