Robert Altman's star-packed drama Gosford Park and English director Iain Softley's sci-fi drama K-Pax will book-end the 45th Regus London Film Festival, it was revealed this morning. Opening the festival and featuring the cre of Britain's acting elite - names including Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Stephen Fry, Derek Jacobi, Richard E Grant, Kristin Scott Thomas and more - Gosford Park is a 1930's set murder mystery at a country estate. Combine this with a closing feature like the curious K-Pax - headlining Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey - and you have a pair of high profile pictures that should make this year's festival shine. "Considering the increasingly competitive nature of the international film festival environment, securing major films such as these is a tribute to the growing stature of the Regus London Film Festival," said a pleased Adrian Wooton, director of the LFF. Empire Online can also exclusively reveal that this year's festival will feature no less than eight - count 'em - world premieres as part of the spectacular line-up. The 45th Regus London Film Festival kicks off on November 7 and Empire Online will be there day and night to bring you behind the scenes coverage, interviews with the stars and up-to-the-minute news.
