Berlin Film Festival Adds Director's Cut Of '54,' James Franco's 'I Am Michael,' And More

16 December 2014 7:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, it's hard to top yesterday's double whammy of the Berlin Film Festival's announcement that Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" would premiere at the festival, followed by the trailer for that film. So it's not quite a shock that today's unveiling of Berlin's Panorama lineup is a bit less thrilling. The highlight additions to the fest are "I Am Michael," the Gus Van Sant-produced drama starring James Franco, Zachary Quinto, and Emma Roberts that tells the true story of a gay activist who finds God and is "saved" from his homosexuality. The movie will have its World Premiere first at Sundance in January. The other film of major note is Hal Hartley's "Ned Rifle," the final chapter in his "Henry Fool" trilogy, which premiered this fall at Tiff. And even more interesting, Mark Christopher is bringing the director's cut of his disco-era drama "54" to the fest. No word yet on the length, »

James Franco, Hal Hartley Films Feature in Berlin’s Panorama Lineup

16 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section has revealed its first 19 films, which include Hal Hartley’s latest “Ned Rifle,” and “I Am Michael,” in which James Franco stars as a gay rights activist.

Hartley, who presented “Henry Fool” in 1997 and “Fay Grim” in 2007, concludes his trilogy with “Ned Rifle,” which the section refers to as a masterpiece.

Justin Kelly delivers his directorial debut, “I Am Michael,” which was co-produced by Gus Van Sant. In it, Franco portrays a gay rights activist during the 1980s, who then tries to turn straight in the 1990s. Pic, which preems at Sundance, also stars Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts.

Director Mark Christopher presents “54 — The Director’s Cut,” 17 years after the film’s premiere. The original movie — about the legendary New York nightclub Studio 54 — was heavily edited by its investors.
