Man of all trades James Francowill add another prize to his resume at the Venice Film Festival this year, the prestigious Jaeger-Le Coultre Glory. The award singles out individuals who are focused on innovating contemporary cinema.
Franco will receive the award before presenting his latest film, The Sound and the Fury, which will receive its world premiere out of competition on the Lido. "The adaptation of the great classics of American literature, like his new film based on a novel by Faulkner which will be presented in Venice, is a major thread in his creative approach, characterized by boldness, lucidity, courage and self-confidence," festival director Alberto Barbera said in a statement. "These values transform his omnivorous verve into a concept of total art performance, founded on considerable curiosity and intelligence."
The Sound and the Fury stars Franco himself alongside frequent collaborator Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson, Joey King,Ahna O’Reilly, Seth Rogen and Jon Hamm. The film marks his second William Faulkner adaptation; he previously premiered As I Lay Dying in Un Certain Regard in Cannes, which was released on VOD in the U.S.
