'As I Lay Dying' Trailer: 'Your Highness' Stars Take on Faulkner

May 13, 2013


Headed to Cannes shortly, James Franco's As I Lay Dying has first received a trailer to remind us which of the many sundry Franco things this is. In short: this is his adaptation of the William Faulkner novel of the same name, an American classic particularly notable for its stream-of-consciousness style divided among various narrators. Never one to avoid sticking James Franco in something, Franco casts himself as the most voluble narrator, and stars alongside Prometheus's Logan Marshall-Green and ever-reliable country folk Tim Blake Nelson and Danny McBride.

Here's the film's trailer. Despite not being officially red-band, it definitely comes close enough to warrant warning that this might not be safe for work, and is definitely yet another Franco project you should not show Mom as an example of what else "the nice Oz man" is doing.
