Long after playing the festival circuit in 2011, Tribeca Film has released the trailer for James Franco’s directorial effort “Sal” ahead of its Fall debut. The biopic chronicles
the final day in the life of actor Sal Mineo (Val Lauren), the 1950s teen
idol and Academy Award nominee for his roles in “Rebel Without A Cause” and “Exodus,” who found himself no longer the sensation he once was. Franco’s films explores the actor’s
homosexuality and journeys with him as he tries to make his way to become the actor and director
he always wanted to be.
“Sal” will be available nationwide on VOD and iTunes on October 22 and will open in select theaters beginning on November 1, in Los Angeles at the Sundance Sunset Cinema.
