James Franco, Heather Graham and Dev Patel to star in Cherry
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
James “I like jobs” Franco is adding the film CHERRY to his insanely busy schedule. The drama is about an 18 year-old girl that falls into the porn industry in San Francisco (does San Fran have a booming straight porn industry?). Franco will play a drug addict lawyer that starts up a relationship with the young girl. At the risk of offending Mr. Franco, I can totally see him as a drug addicted lawyer. Along with James Franco, Heather Graham, Dev Patel and Lili Taylor are all in talks to star in the film. There’s no word yet on who the other actors would play.
It seems like the key role in CHERRY is that of the young girl and we know it won’t be Heather Graham. It would be kind of neat to see Graham play the older pornstar that mentors the young girl, similar to the role Julianne Moore played opposite Graham in BOOGIE NIGHTS.
