Franco’s “Lay Dying” Heads Direct To VOD

Originally slated to hit cinemas tomorrow, the James Franco directed “As I Lay Dying” is now bypassing a theatrical release.

An adaptation of William Faulkner’s novel of the same name, the film premiered in Cannes to decidedly mixed reviews. However, a small portion of critics seemed to really adore it.

The main problem is that the style is said to be very art house, which makes it a tough sell. As a result, the film will now make its first appearance on iTunes on October 22nd ahead of a VOD/iVOD and DVD release on November 5th.
