Sundance 2012: Sean Penn film joins the line-up
Films featuring Sean Penn, Frances McDormand, Paul Giamatti, Jesse Eisenberg, Tracy Morgan, and Melissa Leo are among late additions to next month’s Sundance Film Festival.
Organizers for Robert Redford’s independent-film showcase said Monday they have added four titles to the previously announced lineup of more than 100 movies.
The new films are: director Paolo Sorrentino’s rock-star-on-a-road-trip tale This Must Be the Place, with Penn and McDormand; Philip Dorling and Ron Nyswaner’s Predisposed, with Eisenberg, Leo, and Morgan in a comic romp about a piano prodigy, his troubled mom and a drug dealer; Don Coscarelli’s horror comedy John Dies at the End, featuring Giamatti; and Joachim Trier’s Oslo, August 31st, a drama about a Norwegian man in crisis.
The festival runs Jan. 19-29 in Park City, Utah.
