Sylvester Stallone wrote the screenplay for the forthcoming drugs thriller

The first trailer for forthcoming drugs thriller Homefront is now online. Watch it below.

The film is based on the popular novel of the same name by Chuck Logan. It pits Jason Statham‘s former Drugs Enforcement Administration (DEA) employee, now seeking a quiet life with his family in a small town, against a local meth kingpin played by James Franco in badass mode.

Logan’s novel was adapted into a screenplay by Sylvester Stallone, who also served as one of the film’s producers. Stallone does not appear on screen but the film’s strong supporting cast does include Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth, Frank Grillo and Mischa Barton.

Director Gary Fleder (Kiss The Girls) shot the film in New Orleans between October and December of last year (2012). Homefront is set to open in US cinemas on November 27 before getting a UK release two days later on November 29.
