Black Swan: Ballet Competition Opens 2010 Venice Competition

The Lido will have it’s Black Swan. Darren Aronofsky who brought The Wrestler to the festival a couple of years earlier will go in without having to worry about bidding wars and the such as it is Fox Searchlight that owns the title and will be opening (and not as I had predicted Focus Features The American) the oldest film festival that matters.

Darren Aronofsky who brought The Wrestler to the festival a couple of years earlier will go in without having to worry about bidding wars and the such as it is Fox Searchlight that owns the title and will be opening (and not as I had predicted Focus Features The American) the oldest film festival that matters. Though Searchlight doesn’t have the picture pegged with a release date, my thinking is they’ll insert the title into their post Conviction line-up: juggling the title with Boyle’s 127 Hours for either a November or December release. A Toronto Int. Film Festival Gala screening should be in the cards.

But it’s unclear whether the rival is a supernatural apparition or if the protagonist is simply having delusions.
