James Franco is set to feature in upcoming sci-fi flick Kin. The movie is produced by the same team behind Stranger Things and Arrival.

Following one of the performances of his career as Tommy Wiseau in last year’s The Disaster Artist, Franco plays the villain in Kin with further appearances from Zoë Kravitz and Dennis Quaid, to name a few.

The first trailer focuses on a recently released ex-con (Jack Raynor), who owes some shady men (Franco and his crew) money. Raynor and his character’s adopted younger brother (Myles Truitt), come across a mysterious alien weapon, which a group of criminals, federal agents, and a gang of otherworldy soldiers want to hunt them down for.

While the plot is hardly groundbreaking, James Franco’s involvement, as well as what looks like impressive special effects in the trailer, lend hope to the movie being a success with audiences.
