Scheduled to be out on  27 JulyNerve, is a 1hr 36mins movie which centers on an app that dares its users to do incredible and potentially dangerous acts. Based on the Jeanne Ryan novel by the same name, the film follows Vee (Roberts) as she breaks out of her comfort zone by downloading the “Nerve” game, soon crossing paths with Franco’s Ian. While their daring escapades start out harmless enough, Vee and Ian soon find themselves at the dangerous mercy of the anonymous “watchers” who now control their fate.

In comparing it to the latest video game crazePokémon Go, which both have yet to play, Franco added with a laugh, “You know what though? If you like Pokémon Go, you are gonna love our movie.”

According to Entertainment weekly news, the pair also discussed filming in New York City, including one sequence that had Franco and Roberts running through Bergdorf Goodman department store in only their underwear. “It’s on screen for maybe five to 10 minutes, but we shot that over the course of two days,” Franco said. “So that’s us in our underwear in front of hundreds of crew members for two days. So that was cool.”

The film serves as a commentary on a fame-driven culture, Franco explains, with characters going to incredible lengths for attention and glory.
