First Trailer for 'The Sound and the Fury' Film with Franco & Rogen
"Bring my brother back!" New Films International has debuted a trailer for James Franco's adaptation of William Faulkner's novel The Sound and the Fury, about the Compson Family living in the deep south in Mississippi in the early 20th century. Starring as Benjy Compson (as seen above) is none other than James Franco himself, with quite an ensemble cast to boot: Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson, Loretta Devine, Joey King, and Ahna O’Reilly. This doesn't have the best reviews, but Dan Romer's Beasts of the Southern Wild score is a nice addition to the trailer. That's all to take not of.
A look at the trials and tribulations of The Compson siblings, living in the deep south during the early part of the 20th century. The Sound and the Fury is directed by actor-writer-filmmaker James Franco, who has directed the films Child of God, Interior. Leather Bar., My Own Private River, Sal and many others previously. The screenplay is written by Matt Rager, adapted from the iconic William Faulkner novel of the same name first published in 1929. This premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals back in 2014. New Films International has already released Franco's The Sound and the Fury limited in the US + on VOD.
