iW NEWS | "Michael Clayton" to Open 4th Dubai International Film Festival

Tony Gilroy‘s “Michael Clayton” will open the 2007 Dubai International Film Festival, organizers announced from the U.A.E. city. Actor George Clooney will attend the opening night gala, launching the festival’s fourth edition taking place December 9 – 16. “This conspiracy thriller will be an exciting and memorable way to start off DIFF 2007; the film will become part of film history alongside classic 1970s dramas about ruthless corporations like The Parallax View,” commented DIFF’s artisitic director Simon Field in a statement. “Not only is it filled with action, it is an immensely watchable character study; Clooney’s acting is superb, subtle, and different and more world-weary than we have seen from him before.” [Brian Brooks]
