Finally some good news! Forget what you heard about the impending White Boy Summer. That’s cancelled. The trailer for Zola, the movie based on A’ziah “Zola” Wells King’s epic 2015 Twitter thread, has finally arrived. James Franco was originally set to direct but then he died? Or moved to Siberia? Not sure what happened to him but Zola’s tale was ultimately directed by Janicza Bravo and stars Taylour Paige in the titular role, and Riley Keough as the white bitch she met at Hooters. Zola and her Twitter saga about an ill-fated ho’s up, pimps down Florida adventure has officially outlived James Franco’s directorial career.
It’s been quite some time since it was announced that the viral story of Zola, a stripper who went on a wild weekend road trip, was going to be made into a movie. Zola’s story is one for the ages. When we all die from nuclear war, Zola’s story will be all that’s left; whispered across the dunes of radiated sand, carried by the poisonous fallout winds. Collider is reporting that the movie is still moving forward and has cast some of its stars.
