Gia Coppola’s ‘Palo Alto,’ Based on James Franco’s Stories, Set for May 9 Release

Tribeca Film has dated “Palo Alto,” the debut feature from Gia Coppola, for a May 9 opening in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a national release.

“Palo Alto” screened last year in the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals, and Tribeca Film picked up U.S. rights in December. Coppola is the granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola and niece of Sofia Coppola.

The film is a James Franco and Rabbit Bandini Prods. presentation, produced by Sebastian Pardo, Adriana Rotaru, Miles Levy and Vince Jolivette and based on several linked stories in James Franco’s book of the same name about a group of high school students.

Franco stars with Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Chris Messina and Val Kilmer with three storylines — a young woman (Roberts) caught between flirting with her soccer coach (Franco) and a relationship with a teen stoner (Jack Kilmer); another about a promiscuous young woman (Levin); and a third about the stoner and his possibly dangerous best friend (Wolff).
