Actor James Franco is selling drugs...for his latest flick that is. The hottie stars in the latest action-comedy film “Pineapple Express” alongside funnyman Seth Rogen.
The film was written by Rogen and produced by the genius Judd Apatow. If you’re a big fan of Apatow’s work, then you’re going to love this film. The movie doesn’t hit theatres until August 8, 2008, but here is the scoop.
The plot entails a Lazy stoner Dale Denton(Seth Rogen) who has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver(James Franco): to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express.
But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene.
Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they're not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express.
We're pretty sure this film is going to bring on a DVD cult just like Superbad did. If you want to see a sneak preview of the film check out the “Pineapple Express” movie trailer below.
