Remember Zola’s epic stripper road trip saga that had us on the edge of our seats? The Twitter tale that captivated the Internets is being turned into a movie, helmed by James Franco.

Reports Variety:

James Franco, Andrew Neel and Killer Films are developing a movie based on stripper Azia “Zola” Wells’ saga of a wild road trip to Florida with Franco directing.

The project is based on David Kushner’s story for Rolling Stone, published in November and titled “Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted.”

Franco will direct from a script by Neel and Mike Roberts. Franco and Vince Jolivette are producing through their Rabbit Bandini Productions with Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa, and Gigi Films’ Gia Walsh and Kara Baker.

Zola took to Twitter to share her story back in October. The enthralling recount of a weekend trek to Florida with “White B*tch Jessica,” her boyfriend Jarrett, and pimp named “Z” is the thing that legends are made of.
