‘Sleuth’ finds premiere in Venice

Branagh film likely to also play Toronto

Michael Caine-Jude Law starrer “Sleuth” will world preem in competition at the Venice Film Festival in early September.

Caine, Law and helmer Kenneth Branagh are expected on the Lido.

Movie’s second fest pit stop will likely be Toronto.

The remake of Joseph Mankiewicz’s 1972 thriller concerns a writer who lures his wife’s lover into a twisted game. Modern update was scripted by Harold Pinter.

Caine, who played the young lover in the original, moves into Laurence Olivier’s role of the writer. Law — who reprised Caine’s “Alfie” (1966) character in 2004 — will again follow in Caine’s footsteps as the lover.

Sony Pictures Classics will release “Sleuth” Stateside and Sony has several overseas territories, including Italy. Paramount has English-speaking territories internationally.
