The Venice Film Festival unveiled the lineup for its 76th edition, which will include high-profile projects like “Ad Astra” with Brad Pitt and “Joker” starring Joaquin Phoenix.
On Thursday morning, the festival announced the films that will vie for the Golden Lion. While this year’s lineup doesn’t boast as many big names as last year (when “A Star Is Born” and “The Favourite” ruled the roost), it will feature stars like Meryl Streep in “The Laundromat” and Adam Driver, and Scarlett Johansson in “Marriage Story.”
There’s already some controversy around this year’s festival. Roman Polanski’s “An Officer And A Spy” will have a red carpet premiere in Venice. And only two female directors made it into the competition.
