The first trailer for director Gary Fleder
‘s new crime thriller Homefront
has arrived, pitting Jason Statham
against James Franco
. Vet action star, director and producer Sylvester Stallone
is only the screenwriter on the upcoming project.
Based on Chuck Logan’s book, Homefront
focuses on a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent (Statham) who retires to a small town for the sake of his 10-year-old daughter, and soon butts heads with the local crime leader(Franco).
The flick, which looks like a fairly typical actioner, co-stars Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth
, and Frank Grillo
‘Homefront’ will arrive in movie theaters on November 27th, 2013.
Looks a bit generic in my opinion, but here’s to hoping I am wrong. See it for yourself.
