‘CASINO’ TOPS SHOWEAST SKED

Universal Pictures’ “Casino” will be screened at the ShowEast expo, slated for Oct. 17-19 at – where else? – an Atlantic City, N.J., casino.

Universal confirmed the latest pairing of director Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro would be screened at the event.

Attendees will also see holiday pics from New Line Cinema and Savoy Pictures, the latter believed to be “Three Wishes,” a Martha Coolidge film starring Patrick Swayze and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as a 1950s drifter and the single mother who takes him into her home.

Those pix join “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” directed by Stephen Herek (“The Three Musketeers”), which stars Richard Dreyfuss as a man who dreams of composing a symphony and struggles with a deaf son, with whom he can’t share his lifelong passion for music. The film, due in early ’96, is an Interscope Communications production in association with Polygram Filmed Entertainment, and was written by Patrick Sheane Duncan. It’s slated for a 9 p.m. screening on Oct. 18.

Also screening is Castle Rock’s “The American President,” which stars Michael Douglas as a widower faced with the difficulty of dating while chief executive. Directed by Rob Reiner, the pic also stars Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox and Dreyfuss, and lands in theaters Nov. 17 after its Oct. 18 ayem screening at ShowEast. Columbia TriStar handles distribution.

“Casino,” which also stars Sharon Stone, Joe Pesci, Don Rickles and James Woods, is one of the more eagerly anticipated releases of the holiday season, given its credentials and subject matter.

It’s the story of “Ace” Rothstein, a ’70s mobster and casino operator. Screenwriter is Nicholas Pileggi.
