The busy James Franco — actor, writer, director, producer and languid one-time Oscar host — is hitting the Croisette with As I Lay Dying, an adaptation of William Faulkner’s Depression-era novel about a Mississippi family that sets out to fulfill their matriarch’s final wish. Franco directed, co-scripted (with Matt Rager) and stars in the film, along with Tim Blake Nelson, Danny McBride and Logan Marshall-Green. Millennium Films produced As I Lay Dying, which unspools in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes. Watch the trailer below:
