First Trailer For ‘The Adderall Diaries’ Just Dropped And Welcome Back To Acting, James Franco
There was a period when James Franco and Shia LaBeouf were duking it out for most talented but bizarre actor in Hollywood. Shia is still bizarre. So is Franco but at least he’s still appearing in big films.
Based on the bestselling memoir by Stephen Elliott, The Adderall Diaries is the story of an author (James Franco) paralyzed by writer’s block and an escalating drug dependency who is sucked down the rabbit hole of a high-profile murder case. As Elliott becomes increasingly obsessed with the trial his own nightmarish childhood memories resurface, particularly of his cruel and distant father (Ed Harris). But when his estranged father returns with his own story to tell, fact and fiction become blurred in an amphetamine-induced haze.
The first trailer is interesting, it’s got wall-to-wall stars, and if it sucks, at least it involves staring at Amber Heard for a couple hours.
