Refresh for latest…: Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera is unveiling the lineup for the 75th edition of the event this morning in Rome. As previously announced, Damien Chazelle will return to opening night duties with Universal’s First Man, two years after his La La Land danced its way onto the awards season trail. Also world premiering is Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star Is Born, from Warner Bros. Other films expected to turn up in the main section include Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite with Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma, five years after the director blew the doors off the Sala Grande with Gravity and three years since he was jury president on the Lido. That honor this year goes to his pal Guillermo del Toro who scooped the Golden Lion last year with The Shape Of Water before going on to win the Best Picture Oscar.
Even with all the speculation, there are sure to be some surprises among Barbera’s list today. Titles are being updated below, so keep checking back.
