Today we have the first photos and some new information about Tar, which stars James Franco, Jessica Chastain, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and many more. Though you may not have heard about the project, or may have only skimmed over the IMDb page, it’s definitely worth your attention.
The film, adapted by James Franco and the students in the class he teaches at New York University, is a compilation of ten short films each directed by a student. They’re based on a book of poems titled Tar by Pulitzer Prize winner C.K. Williams.
Tar has been described a film in the same vein as New York, I Love You. Each short film will be based on one poem, that when bought together as a whole, will act as a look at the poet’s life through his poetry.
The film is expected to be released later this year.
