Steve Carell-starring comedy will open much-anticipated Texas event in March, kicking off nine days of screenings
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, starring Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as washed-up Las Vegas magicians threatened by the rise of a guerrilla street performer (played by Jim Carrey), is to open this year's SXSW film festival.
Don Scardino's film, which also stars Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini, will have its world premiere at the Austin, Texas event on 8 March. It will then open at Us cinemas the following week, on 13 March.
This year's SXSW, which runs for nine days, will also feature the Us premiere of Harmony Korine's Toronto and Venice hit Spring Breakers. Other films include the controversial remake of Sam Raimi's classic 1981 horror Evil Dead, from Fede Alvarez; and the Ryan White documentary Good Ol' Freda, about the Beatles' secretary Freda Kelly.
