James Franco To Develop Film Based On Crazy Zola The Stripper Saga
Remember when Twitter user Zola Moon used the social media website to recount a series of dangerous escapades about prostitution, stripping, murder and robbery? Well according to Variety, James Franco will join forces with Andrew Neel and Killer Films to develop a feature based on Zola’s story.
Per the news outlet, the project, which will chronicle Azia “Zola” Wells’ tale of traveling around Florida with a girl she met at Hooters, is based on David Kushner’s story for Rolling Stone, titled “Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted.”
It’s unclear who will play the stripper turned famous, but back in October, when rumors of a Zola film first hit the Web, Keke Palmer’s name started circulating.
Palmer, however, took to social media to shut down reports.
Franco, whose directing credits include “In Dubious Battle,” “As I Lay Dying” and the upcoming “The Disaster Artist,” will direct the anticipated film.
