Teaser Trailer for James Franco’s Film Adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Novel Child of God

So James Franco has taken a stab at Faulkner and one of Faulkner’s literary descendants, Cormac McCarthy—in the same year no less. Franco has adapted McCarthy’s 1973 novel Child of God; the film will play this weekend at the Toronto Film Festival.

Here is my review of McCarthy’s novel Child of God.

    Too clean for Lester as I picture him.

    He’s back in Mississippi filming “The Sound and the Fury” right now. Started on Tuesday. I think he’s wrapping on Friday and tackling “Moby Dick” over the weekend.

    I heard he shot McElroy’s Women and Men on his iPhone.

        Franco like you’ve never seen him before as The Misfit. And the Grandmother. And Julian. And Tom T. Shiftlet. And Lucynell Crater. And Manley Pointer. And the guy with the huge Christ tattoo on his back….

    It’s a bold move, as I remember that Cormac McCarty novel being really raw.

    Next month he’s adapting Ted Frederick Castle’s ANTICIPATION into a series of Paul Sharits-like films starring the disciples of Mummenshanz.

    I’ve only seen the trailer for this and As I Lay Dying but both of them reek of student film. He needs to do something about the type in these.

    I just hope they don’t water Ballard down to make him more ‘relatable.’
