James Franco is one of the High Rollers

A new drama for the “Spider-Man” star


A certain someone, by way of another certain someone, tells us that James Franco (“Spider-Man”) has signed to star in a new movie called “High Rollers”.

The film, from writer/director Stephen Brill (“Without a Paddle”), tells of a desperate man who goes to hell and back – gets himself into quite a few sticky situations – to pay off his gambling debts.

Persistent Entertainment, the troupe behind the finally-forthcoming “Southland Tales”, serves as the production company.
