Twitter Zola Story

According to The Washington Post, on Oct. 27, a 19-year-old Detroit woman named Aziah Wells tweeted a story that’s since been read by millions: In it, she describes an eyebrow-raising weekend trip with a woman she barely knows, her overbearing pimp, and the woman’s teary, manic-depressive boyfriend. Wells, who thought she was going along to dance in high-end strip clubs, is surprised to find out her acquaintance is actually in Tampa to “trap.” And from there, the surprises just keep coming: a kidnapping, a fatal shooting, a suicide attempt.

Aziah 'Zola' Wells reports that James Franco will direct the project from a script by Neel and Mike Roberts which is based on David Kushner’s story for Rolling Stone, published in November and titled “Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted.”

Kushner’s story was billed as an exclusive account of Wells’ 148-count tweet about her October road trip to Florida with her friend Jessica, Jessica’s boyfriend Jarrett, and Jessica’s violent Nigerian pimp “Z.”
