"Homefront," written by Stallone, will feature Statham as Phil Broker, an ex-DEA agent moving his family to a quiet town to
embrace escape his past. Unfortunately, said small town is now under the province of ruthless meth kingpin Gator, to be played by the always-working James Franco. Franco as a drug magnate named GATOR? There will be dreadlocks.
Millennium Films (who else?) is behind this latest effort, to be directed by Gary Fleder, who last helmed 2008's little-seen drama "The Express." Though he's probably more well known for directing the star-packed "Runaway Jury," which featured a scene between Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman blocked and edited as if a blind man directed, as if you needed to do anything with those two other than leave the camera on.
While Millennium Films has been a home for Stallone and Statham's action efforts, Franco has also suddenly become a studio sweetheart, starring in the upcoming "The Iceman" and "Lovelace," the latter which will feature him as Hugh Hefner, continuing an acting career that sounds like an extended parody.
