“Superman Returns’” Lois Lane, Kate Bosworth (last seen in the remake of “Straw Dogs”) has joined the cast of the Sylvester Stallone-scripted “Homefront”, an action movie set to be directed by Gary Fleder (“The Express “) for Millennium Films.
“Homefront” has the always ready to rumble Jason Statham playing a burned out ex-DEA agent who moves to a small, quiet town with his family in order to start over. But, alas, that’s not to be for our hero. Trouble arises when he cross paths with drug traffickers, including one particularly nasty meth kingpin name Gator, to be played by James Franco.
Yes, it’s James Franco vs. Jason Statham. Just to with it…
Bosworth would play Gator’s meth-addicted sister, who we’re told “inadvertently starts the feud when her son, a bully, gets his butt handed to him by Statham’s daughter at school. She turns to Gator, psychotically wanting retribution.”
She’s a girl and she wants revenge. Of course it’ll be “psychotically”. (Just kidding, ladies. Or am I?)
Bosworth joins Franco and Statham, along with the previously cast Frank Grillo and Winona Ryder as a former biker chick. Izabela Vidovic will play Statham’s daughter. The movie will be loosely based on a series of novels by Chuck Logan.
Franco, we’ll assume, will look something like his character in Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers”:
