Karlovy Vary attacts record numbers

Former president Havel set for 'Shootout'

As the Karlovy Vary film fest nears its Saturday close, record numbers of attendees have included an upsurge in celebs.

Joining the Czech Republic’s Jan Sverak, Jiri Menzel and Jan Hrebejk, is former president Vaclav Havel who is slated to appear on Daily Variety editor-in-chief Peter Bart’s AMC show “Sunday Morning Shootout.”

One of the last of the surviving icons of peaceful resistance to totalitarianism, Havel has returned to writing and is working out the logistics of where his new play will premiere in the autumn.

Cybill Shepherd Danny DeVito, Jake Paltrow and Blythe Danner are adding to the fest’s Hollywood star quotient this year.
