James Franco’s “Dubious Battle” Casts Up

Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride have all signed on to star in James Franco’s upcoming film adaptation of the John Steinbeck’s 1936 novel “In Dubious Battle”.

The story centers on a man trying to organize a strike between fruit pickers in Southern California. Matt Rager (“As I Lay Dying”) is writing the screenplay and filming is slated to begin in March.

No details are available for the characters these actors will play. Franco recently made his Broadway debut with a revival of Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men”.
