Among the many academic pursuits, art installations and meta-projects James Franco undertakes at any given moment, it might shock you to know that he also makes movies. You may have forgotten he was in last summer's smash hit "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" or that his latest directorial effort "The Broken Tower" hit VOD last month. Well, "Cherry," the latest movie starring the busy thesp, is headed to Berlin and some first images have arrived.

Cherry, James Franco, Heather Graham, Lily Taylor

Among the many academic pursuits, art installations and meta-projects James Franco undertakes at any given moment, it might shock you to know that he also makes movies. You may have forgotten he was in last summer's smash hit "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" or that his latest directorial effort "The Broken Tower" hit VOD last month. Well, "Cherry," the latest movie starring the busy thesp, is headed to Berlin and some first images have arrived.

We wish we could show them to you a bit bigger, but press photos for this one are disappointingly low-res, so you'll have to do with that for now. Co-starring Heather Graham, Lili Taylor and "Slumdog Millionaire" star Dev Patel, the story takes place within the porn industry, and follows an 18-year-old girl who becomes involved in the business. Franco will play a coke-addled lawyer, with Graham as a porn actress-turned-director (Rollergirl returns?), Taylor as the young girl's alcoholic mother, and Patel as the girl's best friend, who secretly holds a candle for her. Adding to the film's credentials, it was penned by porn star/NYU grad/writer Lorelei Lee and directed by Stephen Elliot, author of "The Adderall Diaries" (the book that Franco optioned in 2010). The film will make its world premiere in Berlin but no word on a domestic release yet; it will need to find a distributor first.
