Dave Franco and Emma Roberts have closed deals to star in the Lionsgate YA thriller “Nerve.”
Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are directing, with Allison Shearmur producing through her banner along with Anthony Katagas.
Based on the Jeanne Ryan novel, the pic follows a high school senior who finds herself immersed in an online game of truth of dare, where her every move starts to become manipulated by an anonymous community of “watchers.”
Emma is featured on the cover of Heroine magazine, Issue 2, you can preview order here! Check out full cover below along with an excerpt from article…
James Franco interviews Emma Roberts for Heroine Magazine’s Issue 2 and gives fans a taste of what it’s like to kiss the 23-year-old actress. Franco, who co-starred with Roberts in “Palo Alto” and will soon be seen alongside her in “I Am Michael,” chatted with Julia Roberts’ niece about everything from “American Horror Story” to Gia Coppola, but couldn’t quite escape the “gushy” talk.
James Franco: I felt like…
Emma Roberts: …Oh no…
JF: …I felt like our kiss was better in the second movie.
ER: [takes a deep breath] Oh my God! [laughs]
JF: …than in Palo Alto…
ER: You’re being such a trouble maker!
JF: So either you got better at kissing…
ER: Oh my God that’s the rudest thing ever! [laughs]
JF: I was thinking maybe you were just being an amazing actress. [laughs]
ER: Maybe I’m a character actress. I didn’t realise you were playing such close attention on both movies, or maybe I would have done it differently.”
“JF: Which character do you think has kissed more people? The young girl in Palo Alto or the budding young Christian in Michael?
ER: I think you’ve kissed more than both of them put together. [laughs]”
But that’s not all. The 36-year-old actor went on to tell Roberts that they have “such weird but ultimately such great chemistry,” leading Roberts to suggest they try playing brother and sister in their next film.
“I feel like if we play brother and sister it’s going to have to be incestuous because our relationships are always weird,” Franco said as Roberts added, “Or maybe we’ll just play really normal boyfriend and girlfriend?”
“I don’t think it would work,” he replied. “I don’t think it would work either,” she caved.
