Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson will star in another James Franco project as he lands the lead in The Long Home.

Hutcherson, who joined Franco’s film In Dubious Battle in March, will feature in the adaptation of William Gay’s novel.

Hutcherson will play a young man in 1940s rural Tennessee who unknowingly ends up working for a man who killed his father ten years ago, reports Variety.

He then falls in love with a girl whom the boss is grooming to be a prostitute.

It’s thought that Franco will star alongside Hutcherson in The Long Home as well as direct and produce, after the Spring Breakers actor uploaded an image from the set covered in fake tattoos.
