James Franco always plays interesting roles in his movies and his newest role is no different. Franco is now set to appear in the movie “Cherry.” The new indie film tells the story about a young girl and her life in the porn industry.
Franco will play a cocaine-addicted lawyer who gets involved with an 18-year-old porn star. Co-starring with Franco will be Heather Graham, who is expected to play a porn star turned director. Lilli Taylor will play the 18-year-old’s desperate mother, while Dev Patel will play the best friend in love with the young porn star. It looks like the only thing missing from this powerful cast is the actual 18-year-old porn star, who is yet to be casted.
Stephen Elliot will direct the film. Production is set to begin next month in San Francisco.
“Cherry” sounds promising with a strong cast of actors. The film will likely be a high dose of drama and include theatrical performances. Of course, a lot of the movie’s success will depend on who gets casted as the young porn star.Tags: Cherry, Dev Patel, Heather Graham, james franco, Stephen Elliot
