Timothy Bottoms honored at Oldenburg Fest
Indie-focused fest known as 'Germany's Sundance'COLOGNE, Germany -- Actor Timothy Bottoms, a star of the New Hollywood era with roles in films such as "The Last Picture Show" and "Johnny Got His Gun" and who received a late career revival playing President George W. Bush in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Comedy Central series "That's My Bush!" will be honored with a retrospective of his work at this year's Oldenburg Film Festival (Sept. 15-19).
Oldenburg, the indie-focused fest known as "Germany's Sundance," will also screen the world premiere of Bottoms' latest, the thriller "Pound of Flesh" co-staring Malcolm McDowell and Angus Macfadyen.
"Pound of Flesh" director Tamar Simon Hoffs, also known as the mother of Bangles lead singer Susanna Hoffs and mother-in-law to "Dinner With Schmucks" helmer Jay Roach, will attend Oldenburg for the premiere.
Oldenburg is still fleshing out its lineup but Spanish drama "The Mosquito Net" from Agusti Vila, which won Karlovy Vary's grand prize, has made the cut.
And two South by South West crowd favorites will be heading to Oldenburg: "Red, White & Blue," a chiller from British director Simon Rumley and the first title from the new Celluloid Dreams/XYZ Films label Celluloid Nightmares and Gareth Edwards' sci-fi debut "Monsters," which Magnet Releasing is handling in the U.S.
