As I Lay Dying Trailer: James Franco Takes on Faulkner

Based on William Faulkner's novel of the same name, As I Lay Dying features James Franco as both director and star of the film — thick Southern accent and all. Set in Mississippi during the Depression, the story follows a family that hopes to honor the wishes of the deceased matriarch, only to face a series of dark complications. The film also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Logan Marshall-Green, and Danny McBride in an unusually dramatic role (it's quite the contrast to the other movie that McBride and Franco are co-starring in this Summer, This Is the End).

Franco also cowrote the script with Matt Rager, and the film adaptation looks to be as dark and as complicated as the book. If the preview is any indication, then As I Lay Dying isn't for the faint of heart. Even in the short trailer, we see death, violence, murder, and rape. The movie premieres at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but you can catch a glimpse now with the trailer below.
