Gary Fleder’s new crime thriller Homefront arrived, and now the first trailer is here, featuring Jason Statham against James Franco.
Statham finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. As a DEA agent just trying to enjoy retired life, Statham finds himself confronting a crime ring led by Franco when their children get into a schoolyard confrontation.
When Franco aims to gets some dirt on the new small town resident, he learns he’s an undercover cop and assumes he’s there to bust him. The trailer looks generic and gives a little too much away, but this battle between Franco and Statham seems fun.
Homefront is directed by Gary Fleder and written by veteran action star, director and producer Sylvester Stallone. Jason Statham plays a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent Phil Broker who is trying to leave his violent life behind him.
He moves with his daughter to small-town Louisiana, where he butts heads with a crime faction including a former biker chick (Winona Ryder) and the local crime leader, Gator (James Franco). Kate Bosworth and Frank Grillo also star in the film.
