Jonah Hill got a taste of what it's like to be nominated for an Academy Award this year and it looks like he wants another shot to win one!
The actor has re-teamed with Moneyball star and producer Brad Pitt for True Story, a real life drama about a disgraced New York Times Magazine writer who is faced with the task of unraveling the mystery behind an accused murderer using his identity while hiding from the law in Mexico.
Jonah will play journalist Michael Finkel and James Franco will play Christian Longo, a man who was on the FBI Ten Most Wanted List for allegedly killing his family.
Although we're thrilled to see two of Judd Apatow's favorite goofballs getting serious on screen, we're a little bummed that Brad Pitt's beautiful face will be hidden behind the camera as a producer.
This sounds like a great project and we can't wait to see how it turns out! Do U think this film has potential to give either Hill or Franco their first Oscar?
