Park City, January 24th, 2014. Executive producer Brad Pitt and actor James Franco were at the premiere of “True Story” during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Franco plays Christian Longo, who killed his wife and three children on the Oregon coast in 2001 and fled to Mexico, where he said he was Michael Finkel, a reporter for The New York Times.

Hill stars as Michael Finkel, a disgraced New York Times reporter who meets accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco), who has been living abroad under Finkel's name. Directed by Rupert Goold, who co-wrote with David Kajganich, adapting Finkel's memoir. Executive producers include Brad Pitt. Part of the Premieres slate.

Here’s a bit more about the film from its studio: When disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) meets accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco) – who has taken on Finkel’s identity – his investigation morphs into an unforgettable game of cat-and-mouse. Based on actual events, Finkel’s relentless pursuit of Longo’s true story encompasses murder, love, deceit and redemption. Rupert Goold’s first feature pits Jonah Hill against James Franco in a psychological cat-and-mouse game obscured by many “truths.” As the two calculating men share their stories in private, their similarities become clear while their motivations are less so. David Kajganich scripts Finkel’s memoir into a subtle portrait of an unlikely friendship. “True Story” will be theaters starting on April 10th.

Here’s a trailer for the film:
