James Franco got pretty weird in Spring Breakers earlier this year, but Alien is a big old teddy bear compared to the unhinged meth kingpin he plays in Homefront. He’s so scary, in fact, that Jason Statham may be the only man who can take him down.
The Gary Fleder-directed, Sylvester Stallone-scripted thriller follows a former DEA agent who retires to a quiet rural community to start a new life with his daughter. But the peace is soon disturbed when he discovers the town’s secret, and the town discovers one of his. A new red-band trailer has hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

Tyler Ross, last seen in the Sundance ’13 drama Milkshake, has nabbed the Eisenberg role of “nerdy handsome” Columbus, while Izabela Vidovic will replace Breslin as young Little Rock. Hit the jump for more.
