jfranco102810_01_X17200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - James Franco has taken yet another eyebrow-raising role, this time in the upcoming Stephen Elliott directed indie film, Cherry.

Franco will portray a cocaine-addicted attorney, who is the love interest of an 18-year-old girl who moves to San Francisco and becomes a porn star.

The porn starlet has yet to be cast, but Heather Graham has also signed on to the film to play a former-porn-star-turned-director who becomes obsessed with Franco's girlfriend.

Lili Taylor is set to play the young porn star's mother, while Slumdog Millionare's Dev Patel will portray the girl's best friend who happens to be in love with her.
