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.

    I had heard absolutely nothing about this until this post.

      That’s because Franco is involved in like a million different projects, so no one knows what to make of it anymore. Seriously, just look at his IMDb page, he has like 15 acting credits just within the next year and has 3 of his own movies (plus a documentary) coming out by the end of 2014.

      Talkin’ about keepin’ himself busy.

        as the SNL version of James Franco once said, “I just like having jobs!”

    Seth Rogan looks really out of place. I didn’t know they were making this into a movie, but I’ll wait and see what the reaction is. I still can’t believe Franco made a Child of God movie, and it was as bad as I figured it would be.

    Had no idea what this was… Then could have sworn that it’d be a comedy.

    I wonder if they’ll sneak any penis or weed jokes into this.

      well apparently Rogan and McBride are only cameos. Franco, John Hamm, and Tim Blake Nelson are the leads, and Dave Franco is also appearing.

    James Franco is just punking us right?

  • bidi

    Franco just does not seem right to play Benjy Compson. and seriously. why does he just insist on making movies solely based on books written by great american authors? lots of these just seem unnecessary as well. Child of God? now this?

  • stephens

    This may be a stupid question but I’m honestly curious….who funds all these movies that James Franco directs? I mean he did As I Lay Dying, Child of God, and now the Sound and the Fury. There must be like 500 people across the country that see these movies, and half of them are probably paid to do so. So who would willingly fund a project that they know nobody is going to see?

  • salfie

    That should read “Nobel” instead of “Noble.”

    Did anyone see “As I Lay Dying”? The production stills looked great but the trailer was really underwhelming for me.
