Scorsese and Polanski At 2010 Berlinale


Roman Polanski, who is under house arrest in Switzerland while awaiting word about an extredition proceeding that may bring him back to a United States prison, will be represented at the upcoming Berlinale (even though Polanski will, presumably, only be there in spirit). The controversial filmmaker's latest film THE GHOST WRITER, an adaptation of novelist Philip Roth's tome, is one of the high profile films announced that will be competing for the Golden Bear prize at the 60th edition of the esteemed German film festival. The film, which stars Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall and Olivia Williams will be making its World Premiere at the event. 

Another high profile title that will have its premiere in Berlin is SHUTTER ISLAND, director Martin Scorsese's latest thriller, with a starry cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Sir Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Patricia Clarkson, and Max von Sydow. The long delayed film will screen out of competition in a world premiere slot.  

So far, only seven films have been announced, with the remaining titles hailing from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, India, Iran, Turkey and the UK, all making their world premieres in Berlin. They include:
