In Dubious Battle Trailer

"Now I have a chance to fight for something." AMBI Group has debuted the first official trailer for James Franco's adaptation of John Steinbeck's acclaimed novel In Dubious Battle, about a group of workers on apple farms in the 1930s who rise up and strike against the landowners. James Franco directs and stars in the film, yet another Franco adaptation, along with Nat Wolff as Jim Nolan, a young recruit who joins the activist and helps organize the strike. The impressive ensemble cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Bryan Cranston, Ed Harris, Sam Shepard, Selena Gomez, Josh Hutcherson, Ashley Greene, John Savage and Zach Braff. This actually looks pretty damn inspiring, I have to admit, I'm intrigued. Check it.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for James Franco's In Dubious Battle, originally from Deadline:

In Dubious Battle Poster

In the 1930s in California's 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 (Wolff), the strike is founded on his tragic idealism-on the "courage never to submit or yield." In Dubious Battle is directed by actor-filmmaker James Franco (Sal, As I Lay Dying, My Own Private River, Child of God, The Sound and the Fury, Zeroville), adapting from John Steinbeck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel first published in 1936. The screenplay is by Matt Rager. The film will premiere at the Venice Film Festival coming up, with no release plans set yet. Anyone interested?
