James Franco likes books. James Franco likes movies. So it makes sense that he likes making movies adapted from highbrow literature. He recently tackled William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, and now he’s presenting his take on Cormac McCarthy’s 1973 novel Child of God. It tells the story of Lester Ballard, a deviant, cave-dwelling, serial-killing necrophiliac. Whoa, is that a character description or a punch line from Franco's upcoming Comedy Central Roast?
