The mystery of where Clint Eastwood’s anticipated J.Edgar will premiere has been solved.
After bypassing the Venice/Telluride/Toronto festival scene, the biopic will openen the American Film Institute’s annual AFI Fest. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and written by Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black, the Warner Bros.-distributed film will debut at a gala on Nov. 3 in advance of its opening in limited theaters on November 9 and a platform release (and awards campaign) after that.
“Clint Eastwood is an American icon – one whose work as a director, actor, producer and composer not only stands the test of time, but also continues to add new, rich chapters with each passing year,” AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale said in a statement.
This year’s 25th annual AFI Fest will take place from November 3 through November 10 in and around Hollywood. Venues include the Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
