Let's go ahead and declare this James Franco Week. After his Comedy Central Roast, a first look at his guest starring role in The Mindy Project and the new trailer for his film Child Of God, we now get a first look at his short stories-turned-movie Palo Alto.
The film follows a group of teens who are hellbent on finding trouble. Emma Roberts plays high school soccer player April who is coerced into a romantic relationship with her coach Mr. B (Franco). "In every town, there are girls looking for love. There are boys looking for trouble. There are men looking for both," the trailer reads.
Palo Alto is directed and co-written by Gia Coppola (Somewhere) and also stars Val Kilmer. The film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival yesterday, Aug. 29, 2013, but has yet to be given a U.S. release date.
