Preview, So Many James Franco movies in the can, so Little Demand for the likes of “Kin”

That’s the only funny thing about James Franco’s Jones for too young if not under-age women and girls. 

He works so much, compulsively some would say, that when his reputation blew up last Oscar season, there were films in the can that nobody could do anything about — plenty of them.

His #MeToo implosion left a LOT of movies in limbo Because his MO was to pursue a LOT of supporting roles in films with lower budgets, which often put him in proximity to young and unknown talent he could prey upon.

That isn’t entirely the case with “Kin,” a sci-fi thriller about a kid (Miles Truitt) who finds a mysterious weapon in an abandoned warehouse, and he and his adoptive brother (Jack Reynor) are soon on the run from supersoldiers and a bad guy (Franco).

Zoe Kravitz and Dennis Quaid also star in this Summit/Lionsgate release, due to be dumped on that favorite trash heap of Cinema with No Hope for Breakout Success — Aug. 31.
