Coen Brothers' 'Burn' Opening Venice Film Festival


Coen Brothers' 'Burn' Opening Venice Film Festival


The Joel and Ethan Coen's dark dramedy starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt has been picked to open the 65th Venice Film Festival on August 27.

Having the award winning pair of filmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen, behind it proved to be enough for "Burn After Reading" to be featured as the opening film of the 65th Venice Film Festival. The dark comedy drama that set up an acclaimed cast ensemble, including George Clooney and Brad Pitt, will kick off the festival with its premiere screening.

By opening the special event, the Focus Features' film will be making its world premiere on August 27 in the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema at Lido di Venezia, Italy. The first time viewing of the movie is said to be done right after the opening ceremony for the festival to be held from August 27 to September 6, 2008.

Coming from the makers of "No Country for Old Men" and "Fargo", "Burn" centers the story on the falling of former CIA agent's memoir to the wrong hands after his wife accidentally left it on a gym. Featuring also the likes of Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton and Richard Jenkins, the tidbit is scheduled to hit theaters on September 12, 2008.
