Millennium Entertainment has released the first Good People trailer for director Henrik Ruben Genz’s crime thriller. The film stars James Franco and Kate Hudson as a cash-strapped couple living in London who come across a duffle bag full of money when their downstairs neighbor turns up dead. Initially thinking no one would miss the large sum, the two soon find themselves in over their heads. The London setting allows the film to stand out amongst the glut of other generic gritty thrillers, and Omar Sy (The Intouchables) appears to be playing a rather menacing villain. It’s still tough to tell whether Franco is half asleep or genuinely giving it his all, though. He does make a lot of movies.
Hit the jump to watch the Good People trailer. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson and will be released in theaters and VOD on September 26th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Good People:
Young American couple Tom and Anna Reed (James Franco and Kate Hudson) fall into severe debt while renovating Anna’s family home in London. As the couple faces the loss of their dream to have a house and start a family, they discover that the tenant in the apartment below them has been murdered and he left behind a stash of cash—$400,000 worth. Though initially hesitant, Tom and Anna decide that the plan is simple: all they have to do is quietly take the money and use only what’s necessary to get them out of debt. But when they start spending the money and can’t seem to stop, they find themselves the target of a deadly adversary—the thief who stole it—and that’s when very bad things start happening to good people.
