Roman Polanski’s film version of God Of Carnage and David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, based on Christopher Hampton’s play The Talking Cure, will debut at the 68th Venice Film Festival, according to a report in Variety. The Festival will run August 31 – September 10.
As previously announced, Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet star in Carnage, which focuses on two sets of parents who meet after their sons are involved in a schoolyard fight.
Cronenberg’s film, which has a screenplay by Hampton, centers on the relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbinder) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and features stage and screen star Keira Knightley as Sabina Spielrein.
Also, as previously reported, Al Pacino’s Wilde Salome will be part of the Festival, receiving a screening on September 4, the day on which the Academy, Tony and Emmy Award-winning actor is slated to receive the Jaeger-Le Coultre Glory to the Filmmaker 2011 Award.
