iW NEWS | London Fest To Open With "Frost/Nixon"

The Times BFI London Film Festival announced that their 2008 edition will open on October 15 with the world premiere of Ron Howard‘s “Frost/Nixon.” The film, adapted by Peter Morgan from his own award winning stage play, stars Michael Sheen and Frank Langella as journalist David Frost and former President Richard Nixon. The film also stars Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, Sam Rockwell, Rebecca Hall, Toby Jones and Matthew Macfadyen. “I’ve been so fortunate with ‘Frost/Nixon,’ working with two world-class directors in theatre and film and watching two lead actors at the top of their games,” said screenwriter Morgan in a statement. “Now, having the film premiere at my hometown just completes a thrilling, fairy-tale ride for me.” The full programme for the festival will be announced on September 10th. The festival runs from October 15-30, 2008. [Peter Knegt]
