'Scarface' (1983)

The 17th annual lower Manhattan event will also feature star-studded talks with Spike Lee, Nancy Meyers and Bradley Cooper, among others, and the New York premiere of Jason Reitman's Charlize Theron-starrer 'Tully.'

The Tribeca Film Festival on Monday announced the anniversary reunion film screenings and star-studded panel discussions set for this year's edition of the annual event.

Schindler's List and In the Soup are set for 25th anniversary screenings and Scarface is set for a 35th anniversary screening, followed by conversations with the films' directors and cast. The In the Soup screening will also be the world premiere of its 4K restoration.

Stars set to participate in this year's Tribeca Talks lineup include: Nancy Meyers; Jamie Foxx; Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro; Alec Baldwin and Spike Lee; John Legend; Alexander Payne; Laura Poitras; Homeland executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter with Claire Danes; Edward Burns; and Sarah Jessica Parker, in the first of what is set to be a year-round series sponsored by Tumi.

There will also be a master class discussion with The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King and The Daily Show executive producers Steve Bodow and Jennifer Flanz.

Tribeca will additionally host the New York premiere of Jason Reitman's Charlize Theron-starrer Tully, written by Diablo Cody in her latest pairing with Reitman and Theron, with whom she worked on Juno (Reitman) and Young Adult (Reitman and Theron). That screening will be followed by a talk between Reitman and writer-director Tamara Jenkins. Tully, a comedy about a harried mother (Theron) and her free-spirited nanny (Mackenzie Davis), received a surprise Sundance screening, after which The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore called it a "funny and piercing take on the self-abnegation of parenting."

The Tribeca fest will also host the world premiere of Burns' latest film, Summertime, which is set in the summer of 1983 at Rockaway Beach.
