Brian De Palma’s Passion has been selected as one of 18 films to compete at this year’s Venice Film Festival, which runs August 29 to September 8. De Palma’s film, officially a French-German production, is listed as running a lean and mean 94 minutes. Also among the selections is Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder. Both films feature Rachel McAdams, who, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is expected to appear at the festival. The line-up was announced this morning, with an additional secret competition title to be announced at a later date. Many are speculating that the additional film will be Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. Ever since De Palma began shooting Passion earlier this year, reports have erroneously been stating that it has been six years since De Palma’s last film. In fact, his most recent film, Redacted, premiered at Venice five years ago, in 2007. That film also played at Telluride and Toronto within days of its Venice premiere. While the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday announced many titles that will screen there this year, there are still more titles to be announced. Telluride keeps its line-up secret until the film is actually playing. The Deauville American Film Festival announced it’s slate today, as well, but Passion was not included. Thanks to De Palma a la Mod for the text and Lindsey for the heads-up.
