James Franco Plays Famous Adventurer Aron Ralston (POLL)

James Franco is adding another writer to his resume.

Already with a role as beat poet Allen Ginsberg under his belt in the upcoming "Howl," Franco is playing adventurer-writer Aron Ralston in "127 Hours."

The film follows the events from Ralston's bestselling memoir, "Between A Rock And A Hard Place," a story which centers on the five days in which he was trapped under a boulder.

"127 Hours" is directed by Danny Boyle, fresh off the runaway success of "Slumdog Millionaire." It's set for release on November 5th.
