James Franco lands all-star cast for new Steinbeck film

James Franco has landed his biggest directorial coup to date after snagging his Spring Breakers co-star Selena Gomez and heavyweights Vincent D'onofrio, Ed Harris and Robert Duvall for his next project.

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride have also signed on for In Dubious Battle, which will be directed by Franco.

The film, based on John Steinbeck's 1936 novel of the same name, is set in a fictional valley in California and focuses on a labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association.

Principal photography will commence in March (15).
