Mel Gibson, “The Beaver” sinking teeth into SXSW


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The annual South By Southwest festival scored a major coup, announcing that Jodie Foster’s “The Beaver,” starring controversial A-lister Mel Gibson, will hold its World Premiere at this year’s event, which is scheduled for March 11-20. “The Beaver” was one of five new titles added to the anticipated SXSW film slate.

SXSW annually brings the finest of film, music and technology to Austin, Texas for a near-two-week explosion of art and culture. While the official film schedule will not be revealed until February, SXSW press reps helpfully Tweeted that “Beaver” would screen on Thursday, March 17 (one of several examples of the festival employees going the extra mile to help media covering the event!)

Duncan Jones’ follow up to his critically acclaimed “Moon,” the sci-fi time-hopping thriller “Source Code,” already has been announced as this year’s Opening Night film. In addition to “The Beaver,” SXSW revealed that the Rodman Flender documentary “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop” and Greg Mottola’s “Paul” – with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as alien-abducting comic book geeks – will play this year’s fest. Also look for the world premieres of “It’s About You,” “The Innkeepers” and “Square Grouper,” by Billy Corben.

HollywoodNews.com will be covering SXSW once again this year, so be sure to bookmark the site to read plenty of pre-festival coverage, as well as reviews and interviews filed from Austin once the fest is underway.
