Rome Film Festival topper Marco Mueller has unveiled a rich lineup mixing crowdpleasers with more esoteric fare and comprising recent standout titles but also many world preems, including new works by Jonathan Demme, Isabel Coixet, and U.S. multi-hyphenate Mark Turtletaub’s first feature “Gods Behaving Badly.”

The U. S., Asia, and Italy feature prominently with plenty of newcomers playing alongside known names and a robust roster of stars that should keep the paparazzi happy.

Gods Behaving Badly,” a comedy about Greek gods living in contempo New York who intervene in the lives of a young couple, will unspool out-of-competition. The “Gods” ensemble cast includes Christopher Walken playing Zeus, John Turturro as Hades, Alicia Silverstone and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as the young couple, and Sharon Stone as Aphrodite. Based on the eponyomous best-seller by Marie Phillips, pic is self-produced by Mark Turtletaub with Peter Saraf through their Big Beach shingle.
