Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar” opening AFI Fest – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Clint Eastwood has finished “J. Edgar,” a film we expect to see on Oscar’s radar, and he’s ready to show it to the masses. The Oscar-winning director revealed that his film will open this year’s AFI Fest, held in November in Los Angeles.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Eastwood’s biopic of controversial FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. The film works off of a script by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black (“Milk”), and also co-stars Armie Hammer and Naomi Watts.

“Clint Eastwood is an American icon – one whose work as a director, actor, producer and composer not only stands the test of time, but also continues to add new, rich chapters with each passing year,” AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale said in a statement.

Eastwood’s film — which sidestepped the fall film trio of Telluride, Venice and Toronto – will screen on Thursday, Nov. 3 in Hollywood. That’s a few days prior to its limited release on Wednesday, Nov. 9. Warner Bros. then plans to expand the biopic on Nov. 11.
