Lucy Liu, Snoop Dogg Join James Franco’s ‘Future World’

Lucy Liu, Suki Waterhouse and Snoop Dogg have joined James Franco’s post-apocalyptic thriller “Future World.”

Franco is co-directing with Bruce Cheung and co-starring with Milla Jovovich. Method Man, Margarita Levieva and Jeffrey Wahlberg has also joined the cast.

Bruce Cheung and Jay Davis wrote the “Future World” screenplay, from an original story by Franco and set in the barren landscape of a dystopian world, where a young prince from the Oasis (one of the last known safe havens) and a robot named Ash go on a daring journey of self-discovery through the violent and desolate world of the Wastelands.

Ambi Group, which is owned Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, is financing the film in association with the Fyzz Facility and Black Sparrow, and producing with Dark Rabbit Productions. Producers are Iervolino, Bacardi, Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis.

Ambi Distribution is handling global sales.

Ambi and Franco teamed to produce “In Dubious Battle,” which Franco also directed and starred in alongside Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston, Nat Wolff, Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene, John Savage and Sam Shepard.

“‘Future World’ is a mesmerizing story with the kind of boundary-pushing creativity unique to James,” Iervolino said. “When you have the combined talents and gravitas of Milla, Lucy, Method Man, Suki, Snoop, and James interwoven through a wild story – what unfolds on screen is unreal.”
