Anderson's 'The Master' to debut in Venice
MILAN (AP) -- The Venice Film Festival says U.S. director Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" will be the 18th film competing for its coveted Golden Lion award.
Festival director Alberto Barbera Tuesday said Tuesday that the film, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, will premiere Sept. 1.
Anderson, the director of "Magnolia" and "There will be Blood," is the 12th director in competition screening a film for the first time in Venice.
The festival announced the remaining 17 competing films last month, including another four by American directors. By recent tradition, the title of the final "secret film" was delayed.
The 69th Biennale opens Aug. 29 with Mira Nair's "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," which shows out of competition.
