James Franco’s adaptation of William Faulkner’s novel “The Sound and the Fury” has released its first video clip. The scene involves Joey King as Miss Quentin Compson, and Scott Haze as Jason Compson III, who are fighting over the girl’s choices for dressing for school, revealing his attempt to control her.
“The Sound and the Fury” depicts the lives of the Compsons, a once proud Southern family which has met tragedy and misfortune. Franco also stars in the movie, along with Seth Rogen, Jon Hamm, Tim Blake Nelson and Ahna O’Reilly.
The movie will premiere out of competition at the Venice Film Festival, after Franco receives the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker prize for “an original contribution to innovation in contemporary cinema.” He will be recognized for his work as “a relentless ‘manufacturer’ of cultural imagery.”
