First Look: Rogen & McBride in James Franco's 'Sound and the Fury'
Normally when we see Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride get together, it's for outrageous comedies like Pineapple Express or the makeshift sequel from the apocalyptic hit This is The End. However, at the Venice Film Festival, we'll see the trio in a whole new light as they all have roles in Franco's adaptation of William Falkner's classic novel The Sound and the Fury. Franco is directing and starring in the film about the tragic crumbling of the Compson family decades ago. It's so odd seeing Rogen and McBride in period wardrobe like this, and we're very curious to see how they do in this kind of film. Look!
Here's the first images from James Franco's The Sound and the Fury (via The Playlist):
The Sound and the Fury is directed by James Franco (Child of God) and written by Matt Rager (As I Lay Dying), based on William Falkner's 20th century novel of the same name. The film captures the lives, passions and tragedy of the Compsons, a once proud Southern family caught in a downward spiral of loss and misfortune. Franco also stars in the film along with Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Joey King, Tim Blake Nelson, Ahna O'Reilly and more. The film will premiere out of competition at the Venice Film Festival later this month, but doesn't have an official release date in the United States yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
