Best Actor Oscar nominee James Franco (127 Hours in 2011) writes, directs and stars in the Well Go USA DVD and Blu-ray release of his film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel, Child of God. The street date is Oct. 28.
It’s interesting that Franco choose not to play the central character of McCarthy’s anti-societal tale, instead Franco recruited Scott Haze (he had a small role in Franco’s As I Lay Dying) to portray the human being-to-cave dwelling protagonist of the piece. It is the role that could very ignite his career!
It’s the 1960s, rural Tennessee and Haze has had a break with reality. Everything that once connected him to society has been stripped away and he has arrived at a mental state that is every bit a tale of horror (and more) that you would expect from any lurid backwood’s tale of depravity. This one is even tough for genre fans to absorb … not for the squimish!
