Not only is James Franco due to receive the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award at the Venice Film Festival in September, but he’s also got a film screening out-of-competition too, his adaptation of the William Faulkner novel, The Sound and the Fury.  With the 71st edition of the festival set to kick off on Wednesday, August 27th, promo material for the official selections is starting to surface and we’ve got four new stills from Franco’s film in the mix.

The assortment features Danny McBride and Seth Rogen looking strikingly different donning their period wardrobe, a shot of Franco’s Child of God star, Scott Haze, looking far more put together than he did as Lester Ballard, and then two more of Franco himself as Benjy Compson.  Hit the jump to check out those The Sound and the Fury images.  The film also stars Jacob Loeb, Ahna O’Reilly, Tim Blake Nelson, Joey King and Loretta Devine.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Sound and the Fury:

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.
