The first official trailer for Child of God has been released via Yahoo! Movies. The film adaptation was helmed by actor James Franco and is based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy. Franco also produces, stars and co-wrote the screenplay with Vince Jolivette.
Child of God stars Tim Blake Nelson, Jim Parrack, Fallon Goodson, Scott Haze, Jeremy Ambler and Jolivett.
The film 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.
It hits theaters in a limited release on August 1. You can watch the trailer below:
