Director James Franco said, “I grew up in California near Steinbeck County. He lived in my city when I was a student in Stanford. As soon as I started reading the book, I was obsessed with his writing, he is part of the fabric of my childhood. […] It is an incredible account of man's struggle against himself, such a raw subject of the Great Depression, and so topical even today. It was a dream come true to bring his work to the screen. "
