James Franco as a ‘Southern-fried Meth Kingpin’ up against Jason Statham in HOMEFRONT, written by Sylvester Stallone

James White says “it was only a matter of time before James Franco turned Heisenberg…Sylvester Stallone wrote the script, in which Statham plays Phil Broker, a family man who moves off the grid with his daughter (Izabela Vidovic), to a quiet bayou backwater to escape his troubled past. However, Broker’s world soon becomes anything but quiet once he discovers that an underbelly of drugs and violence riddles the small town. Soon, a sociopathic methamphetamine kingpin, Gator Bodine (Franco), puts Broker and his daughter in harm’s way, forcing Broker back into action to save his family and the town.”
