*LOS ANGELES (October 19, 2015)*–– New Films International (NFI)

“This Is the End”) drama “The Sound and the Fury” starring himself, Emmy
Award nominee Seth Rogan (“Steve Jobs,” “Knocked Up”), Danny McBride

Matt Rager adapted the screenplay from William Faulkner’s novel. “The
Sound and the Fury” is Franco’s second big-screen directorial adaptation
of a William Faulkner novel, following “As I Lay Dying” which premiered
at the Cannes Film Festival.

“The Sound and the Fury” is a film based on the Nobel Prize winning book
of the same name published in 1929 set in Jefferson, Mississippi. The
novel centers around the Compson Family, former Southern aristocrats who
are struggling to deal with the dissolution of their family and its
reputation. Over the course of thirty years, the family falls into
financial ruin, loses its religious faith and the respect of the town of
Jefferson. Many of them die tragically.

New Films International president Nesim Hason said, “While most people
recognize James Franco as a talented actor, we are excited to highlight
him as a director with a keen eye for narrative stories. Coupled with
his love of literature, we think “The Sound and the Fury” is a wonderful
addition to the New Film International slate.”

Caroline Aragon of Made In Film-Land, Lee Caplin of Usonian Media Group,
Vince Jolivette of RabbitBandini Productions and Miles Levy produced the
film. Executive producers include Nesim Hason of New Films
International, Straw Weisman of Marquee Productions, Sezin Hason and
Eddie Siman.
