The film will be debuting at the International Rome Film Festival next month, and the first two images from the film have surfaced online.
Based on the life of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, C. K. Williams, the film is written and directed by Edna Biesold, Sarah-Violet Bliss, Bruce Thierry Cheung, Gabrielle Demeestere, Alexis Gambis, Shruti Ganguly, Brooke Goldfinch, Omar Zuniga Hidalgo, Shripriya Mahesh, Pamela Romanowsky, Tine Thomasen, and Virginia Urreiztieta, with supervision from Franco himself.
Franco stars as C. K. Williams, alongside Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Bruce Campbell, and Henry Hopper, who will be playing the younger version of the poet.
Tar will be making its world premiere in Rome next month, and hopefully will be picked up at the festival for distribution elsewhere. Yet another example of Franco’s fascinating choices with his career, bringing in an incredible cast alongside him. For now, here are the first images from the film, which you can click to enlarge.
