Written and directed by the talented multi-hyphenate, Mr. James Franco, and screened at the recent Cannes Film Festival, Millenium Entertainment has just released the poster for Franco’s adaptation of the Faulkner novel “As I Lay Dying.”
The film stars Franco, Tim Blake Nelson, Danny McBride, Logan Marshall-Green, Franco’s former flame Ahna O’Reilly, as well as Jim Parrack, Beth Grant and Brady Permenter.
The film isn’t due out until late September, but Franco should have a dozen other projects out to keep you occupied in the meantime.
While Faulkner penned the above classic, below is a classic of another variety, the remake of the cult-worshipped Korean film Oldboy. While the original by Park Chan Wook is considered untouchable by many, the English version, starring “No Country for Old Men’s” Josh Brolin, and directed by the hit-or-miss Spike Lee has some definite promise, beginning with this Van Gogh-esque poster, with the title of the film printed in Brolin’s handwriting.
