James Franco Film Set Locally Released Soon

Remember when James Franco was in town filming a movie a few years ago? We finally have some details on it.

Back in November 2016, James Franco was in the Capital Region filming a movie. He was spotted at Union College in Schenectady, Lombardo’s in Albany, the Palace Theatre in Albany, and Russell Sage in Troy, according to the Times Union.

The movie is called “The Pretenders” and was written by Josh Boone. The movie also features Brian Cox, Dennis Quaid, Juno Temple and James Franco, who also directed the film. The plot of the movie apparently is that a man named Jack Kilmer is “an aspiring filmmaker who falls for a beautiful young woman played by Jane Levy.”

No word yet on if the movie will open to all theaters or just a select few but we’ll only have to wait until September 27th to find out.
