The first full trailer for James Franco‘s adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s 1973 novel “Child of God” has landed online, and it looks like there’s plenty of death awaiting audiences.
Scott Haze — who was also in Franco’s William Faulkner adaptation, “As I Lay Dying” — stars as a sadistic maniac who goes on a killing spree in 1960s Tennessee.
Franco plays one of the men in town who rallies to bring the violent social outcast down and discover the bodies of his victims. Tim Blake Nelson (“O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) and Jim Parrack (“True Blood”) co-star.
Franco directed and co-wrote the indie drama with Vince Jolivette.
