The Trailer for James Franco’s Child of God

ON

Well Go USA Entertainment has released, via Yahoo! Movies, the trailer for Child of God, the James Franco-helmed adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel. Franco also produces, stars and co-wrote the screenplay with Vince Jolivette.

Also starring Tim Blake Nelson, Jim Parrack, Fallon Goodson, Scott Haze, Jeremy Ambler and Jolivett, Child of God is about a dispossessed, violent man whose life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.

Child of God hits theaters in a limited release on August 1.
