Watch: James Franco & Kate Hudson Are 'Good People' Stealing Cash
There's no doubt James Franco has been super busy lately. Last year alone, Franco appeared in the films Homefront, Oz: The Great and Powerful, This is The End, Lovelace, As I Lay Dying, Child of God and Palo Alto. This year he's not much less busy with Third Person on the way, and now we have the trailer for a new crime drama called Good People starring Franco and Kate Hudson (who also has Wish I Was Here this summer too). The film follows a down-on-their-luck couple in serious debt who stumble upon a huge stack of cash in the apartment of the now deceased tenant living below them. It seems to solve their financial problems and fix their lives at first, until they start getting chased by those who want the cash back. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Henrik Genz's Good People, originally from Apple:
Good People is directed by Henrik Genz ("The Killing") and written by Kelly Masterson (Snowpiercer). Tom and Anna Reed (James Franco and Kate Hudson) are an American couple who fall into severe debt while renovating Anna's family home in London. As the couple faces the loss of their dream to have a house and start a family, they discover that the tenant in the apartment below them is dead, and he's left behind a stash of cash — $400,000 worth. Tom and Anna carefully decide to take the money, only to get them out of debt. But when they can't stop spending, they find themselves the target of a deadly adversary. Omar Sy also stars in the film that Millennium Entertainment releases in limited theaters this summer on July 25th.

I'm interested. Also, it's nice to see Omar Sy get work.

Nice to see someone else play the evil immigrant thug other than go-to bad guy actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

This story has been done to death! But on saying that I am interested....I just really hate hate Hate James "can't act" Franco!

Yea, I gotta agree with you here. I've also developed a real repelled feeling with anything to do with this guy. I read that he was embarrassing on Broadway in Of Mice and Men. He just seems to be totally unware of his effect on people...or he's so arrogant his self deception so deep he's just a lost soul. Poor sod!

True, the story is old as gumshoe, but if it's done good--and the trailer looks promising--it can make for a pretty great movie, like 2010's A Bout Portant.

I love James Franco, but this looks bad. He also seems miscast here. Maybe he should just stick with films that have comedic or ironic undertones.
