Venice Film Festival Lineup: Malick, De Palma, Korine …

The biggest name at this year's Venice Film Festival will be the suddenly prolific Terrence Malick, whose To the Wonder — starring Ben Affleck, Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem — is slated for its world premiere. Also on the docket is Brian de Palma's Passion, starring McAdams alongside Noomi Rapace; Ramin Bahrani's At Any Price, with Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid; Robert Redford's celeb-stuffed The Company You Keep (not in competition); Spike Lee's Michael Jackson documentary, Bad (also not in competition); and Harmony Korine's much-discussed Spring Breakers, also known as "the movie where James Franco is dressed like Kevin Federline and/or Riff Raff."
