Remember Zola’s epic stripper road trip story via Twitter that everyone wanting more? The crazy Twitter story is now being turned into a movie, thanks to James Franco.
James Franco, Andrew Neel and Killer Films are developing a movie based on stripper Azia “Zola” Wells’ saga of a wild road trip to Florida with Franco directing.
The project is based on David Kushner’s story for Rolling Stone, published in November and titled “Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted.”
Franco will direct from a script by Neel and Mike Roberts. Franco and Vince Jolivette are producing through their Rabbit Bandini Productions with Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa, and Gigi Films’ Gia Walsh and Kara Baker.
Zola took to Twitter to share her story back in October. The tweets were pretty much about a weekend trip to Florida with “White B*tch Jessica,” her boyfriend Jarrett, and a pimp named “Z.”
