Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana and Natalie Portman are among the stars expected to attend the Berlin Film Festival next month.
Penelope Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis, who won a Golden Globe as best dramatic actor, also are expected, festival director Dieter Kosslick told The Associated Press. He said Johansson’s appearance at the Berlin festival would be her first.
I am going to be all over this. I’ll need a laff.
Madonna’s directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom, will have its world premiere at Germany’s Berlinale film festival next February. The thirty-minute low-budget short comedy is reportedly based on the singer’s life.
