True Story, starring James Franco and Jonah Hill, begins filming in NYC

Today, a new project called True Story began filming at Cine Magic Riverfront Studios in Brooklyn.

The movie is based on a memoir by Michael Finkel, the former New York Times Magazine writer who learned Christian Longo, one of the FBI’s Wanted, had been living under his identity for years. The day after Longo was captured, Finkel was fired for falsifying a story but, just when it seemed his career was over, Longo decided he would only do interviews with Finkel, which gave him a chance to redeem himself.

Jonah Hill is attached to play Finkel and James Franco is expected to play Longo. According to several casting calls, the film will shoot in and around New York City through May 1st.
