New Teaser For James Franco's 'Child Of God' Adaptation
At the Venice Film Festival this week, attendees will see James Franco's latest installment in his adaptation-athon, this time offering us his take on the Cormac McCarthy novel Child Of God. The film stars Scott Haze as Lester Ballard, "a dispossessed, violent man," according to Wikipedia, who "descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation." Sounds cheery!
Those of us not going to Venice or attending the special screening at the Toronto International Film Festival will have to make due with this very teasing teaser trailer, first unveiled online by Deadline. Check it out:
Haze certainly has the look of a crazy man down. The Franco himself, Jim Parrack and Tim Blake Nelson also star.
What do you think? I know there isn't much to go on, but does this look like a decent adaptation of McCarthy's work?
