The Broken Tower Trailer

Discover the true story of a visionary American artist. I still find it a bit odd to see the title card "From the Writer-Director James Franco", but apparently it's true. Jeff Reichert has debuted an official trailer on Apple for a film titled Broken Tower, written & directed by James Franco, starring James Franco as American poet Hart Crane. It's a B&W docudrama originating from Franco's mind after reading Crane's biography. I think it's one of those expressive poem-voiceover as the story unfolds kind of films, which may not dazzle a lot of you, but perhaps some. Either way, it's Franco writing, directing himself, and producing.

Watch the first official trailer for James Franco's The Broken Tower, in high def from Apple:

The Broken Tower is an American B&W docudrama directed by actor James Franco, who has directed other shorts previously. The film is about American poet Hart Crane, who committed suicide in April 1932 at the age of 32 by jumping off the steamship SS Orizaba. Franco stars in and edited, co-produced, and wrote the screenplay. Michael Shannon also stars. The Broken Tower made its world premiere in April of 2011 at Boston College as well as the Los Angeles Film Festival, and will be released in limited theaters by Focus World this year. The current release date is set for April 27th this spring, if you're interested. Is anyone?
