First Look: Jason Statham & James Franco in New Thriller 'Homefront'
This has been a wild year for James Franco. He's premiered films that he directed himself at Sundance, Cannes and Venice, not to mention starring in four other movies, and he just got roasted on Comedy Central by comedians and friends like Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Jonah Hill. Now he's teaming up with action star Jason Statham for a new thriller called Homefront, and we have some first look photos. The script comes from Sylvester Stallone and follows a DEA agent who moves to a small-town, finished with his life fighting lawbreakers. But of course, he gets involved with taking down yet another crime outfit. Look now!
Here's the first look at Gary Fleder's Homefront from USA Today:
Homefront is directed by Gary Fleder (Runaway Jury, Don't Say a Word) and written by veteran action star, director and producer Sylvester Stallone. Jason Statham plays a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent Phil Broker who is trying to leave his violent life behind him. He moves with his daughter to small-town Louisiana, where he butts heads with a crime faction including a former biker chick (Winona Ryder) and the local crime leader, Gator (James Franco). Kate Bosworth and Frank Grillo also star in the film which Open Road Films will send to movie theaters this fall on November 27th. Interested?
