Watch now: 'True Story' trailer starring James Franco and Jonah Hill

The comical duo get serious

Based on a true story, 'True Story' will see James Franco acting opposite his friend Jonah Hill on the big screen once again, with first trailer for the film now released

Both known for their roles in comedy, James Franco and Jonah Hill have taken a more solemn approach to their latest film, True Story. The gripping drama tells the story of journalist Michael Finkel (Hill) and his relationship with Christian Longo (Franco) – an FBI murder suspect who has been using Finkel's name as his alias for years. 

The Rupert Goold-directed film has still not secured a general release date, but will debut at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival next month.
