Three new images from Child Of God, the new film directed by James Franco and starring Scott Haze have been released, ahead of the films world premiere in two weeks.
The photos, attached below, give us our first look at Tim Blake Nelson as Sheriff Fate, a shot of James Franco directing and a new image of Scott Haze as Lester Ballard.
The synopsis for Child Of God, which is based on the 1973 novel, by Pulitzer winning author Cormac McCarthy, reads:
“Set in mountainous Sevier County, Tennessee, in the 1960s, Child of God tells the story of Lester Ballard (Scott Haze), a dispossessed, violent man whom the narrator describes as “a child of God much like yourself perhaps.” Ballard’s 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 will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on the 31st August in official competition and will have it’s North American premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival in September.
