A bank heist goes terrifyingly wrong in trailer for James Franco-starring The Vault

Taryn Manning costars in film, out Sept. 1

Posted on

James Franco has a lot of upcoming projects, including the film The Disaster Artist — about the making of cult classic movie The Room — and the TV series The Deuce. But we are pretty sure that only one of those involves the attempted heist of a bank which has something very creepy in its basement.

The Vault stars Francesca Eastwood (Final Girl) and Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow, Orange Is the New Black) as estranged sisters, who are forced to rob a bank in order to save their troubled brother, played by Scott Haze (Child of God). The heist begins smoothly, but mayhem ensues when the defiant bank manager (Franco) sends them to a basement-level vault, which, it turns out, is home to something truly evil.

The Vault is directed by Dan Bush, one of the filmmakers responsible for 2007’s quite excellent science fiction-horror movie, The Signal. FilmRise is releasing The Vault in select theaters and on demand, Sept. 1.
