All Is Lost, Robert Redford

The Zurich Film Festival has landed some big movies for its 2013 program, considering it's only 10 years young.

The 9th Annual lineup will feature Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," Naomi Watts in "Diana" and Robert Redford in J.C. Chandor's sophomore feature "All Is Lost." Both "Gravity" and "All Is Lost" will have already premiered at Venice and Cannes respectively, but the ZFF could mark the first festival stop for the Lady Di biopic, "Diana."

Other films in the fest announced today include "Devil's Knot," a true story starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth that deals with the murder of three children; "The Railway Man," based on an autobiographical novel about a Scottish POW and starring Firth and Nicole Kidman; "Joe," starring Nicolas Cage as an ex-con trying to reform in David Gordon Green's latest; and "Le Weekend," a romantic comedy starring Jim Broadbent, Jeff Goldblum, and Lindsay Duncan. 

Swiss-German director Marc Forster ("World War Z") will preside over the international feature film jury during the festival's run from September 26 - October 6. The rest of the lineup for the ZFF will be announced September 12.
