"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch the trailer for James Franco’s adaptation of In Dubious Battle



James Franco has already directed adaptations of William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy, now he has taken a crack at John Steinbeck’s In Dubious Battle. Franco also stars in the film alongside Nat Wolff, Josh Hutcherson, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Analeigh Tipton, Zach Braff, Bryan Cranston, Ed Harris, David Sullivan and Robert Duvall.

In the California apple country, nine hundred migratory workers rise up “in dubious battle” against the landowners. The group takes on a life of its own-stronger than its individual members and more frightening. Led by the doomed Jim Nolan, the strike is founded on his tragic idealism-on the “courage never to submit or yield.” Published in 1936, In Dubious Battle is considered the first major work of Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck.

Watch the trailer below.
