Howl is a forthcoming film based on Allen Ginsberg, and particularly on the 1957 obscenity trial surrounding his eponymous signature poem which I’ve never read. It will mark the fiction directing debut for documentarian duo Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman (The Celluloid Closet).
James Franco (Pineapple Express) will star as Ginsberg alongside Paul Rudd (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Alan Alda (The Aviator), Mary-Louise Parker (The Spiderwick Chronicles), Jeff Daniels (Traitor) and David Srathairn (The Spiderwick Chronicles).
Interestingly another, unrelated werewolf movie entitled Howl will also be released next year. Which are you most looking forward to?
