Venice Film Fest announces full line-up

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The fall film calendar is filling up. First, it was Toronto that hinted at 50 titles which will play its festival in September. This morning, the Venice Film Festival unleashed a full list of films that will compete at the 67th annual event.

A few titles already were on our radar. It had been reported that the Venice fest would open with Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” close with Julie Taymor’s “The Tempest,” and world premiere Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” during a midnight screening.

In between, attendees can anticipate new films by Sofia Coppola (“Somewhere”), Vincent Gallo (“Promises Written in Water”), Antony Cordier (“Happy Few”), Julian Schnabel (“Miral”), Tom Tykwer (“Drei”), and, of all people, Monte Hellman (“Road to Nowhere”).

Screening out of competition will be films by Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Dennis Hopper, Stanley Kwan, Takashi Miike, John Turturro, and Yuan Zhang.

The 67th annual Venice Film Festival runs Sept. 1-11.
