Venice First Look: James Franco, Seth Rogen And Danny McBride In 'The Sound And The Fury'

Alongside Cormac McCarthy, William Faulkner is the author of most interest to James Franco. Last year, Franco went to Cannes with his adaptation of “As I Lay Dying,” which utilized split screens to capture to the many voices encompassing the story’s narrative simultaneously. And while it remains to be seen what aesthetic tricks Franco will bring to his latest Faulkner-derived project, “The Sound And The Fury,” the first batch of images from the movie indicate his inclinations.

In typical Franco fashion, he’s starring in and directing the picture, and he’s also called up pals Seth Rogen and Danny McBride for roles alongside Joey King, Tim Blake Nelson, Ahna O’Reilly and more. Here’s the official synopsis: Directed by and starring Academy Award nominee James Franco, The Sound and The Fury captures the lives and passions of the Compsons, a once proud Southern family caught in a tragic spiral of loss and misfortune. Based on the novel by Noble Prize winner author William Faulkner and considered among the 20th century’s greatest works, The Sound and the Fury encapsulates the universal theme of the death of honor, social injustice and forbidden love.

“The Sound And The Fury” will have its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival where it will play Out Of Competition. Pics below.

Seth Rogan looks so out of place in that pic, and the rest of it looks like over the top melodrama. This is another Franco disaster that I'll be skipping.

If he wasn't so disgusting in his personal life, I would be more inclined to just ignore these vanity projects of his. I don't understand how he continues to get funding for these flops and why much better projects are languishing.


looks good to me. all three of my top favorite actors : Danny Mcbride, Seth Rogen, and my number one favorite James Franco. i have to see this movie


hope this idiot doesn't kill off David Milch's HBO Faulkner projects. anyone up for signing a petition telling James Franco to lay the f@ck off literary works?


Is this an SNL sketch?


For f*ck's sake.


One more sh***y movie from Franco. Ok.
