Child of God Movie Trailer

Check out the first official trailer of Child of God, James Franco’s upcoming movie adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Cormac McCarthy:

“Set in mountainous Sevier County, Tennessee, Child of God tells the story of Lester Ballard, a dispossessed, violent man whom the narrator describes as ‘ 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.”

Have you read the novel the film is based on? Worth reading beforehand or should I just wait for the film?

Actor Scott Haze got the lead role as Lester Ballard.
