‘Crazy,’ ‘Artist’ for Hamptons

Festival sets closing, centerpiece films

The Hamptons Film Festival has set its centerpiece and closing night films, tapping Sundance Award winner “Like Crazy” for centerpiece and Cannes fave “The Artist” as the closer.

Anton Yelchin, who stars in young-love tale “Like Crazy” with Felicity Jones, will be among the thesps tapped for the fest’s annual roster of breakthrough performers.

The Weinstein Co.’s “Artist” isn’t the only TWC pic on the HIFF slate: Teen bullying doc “The Bully Project,” acquired at Tribeca earlier this year, will screen as the winner of the fest’s Brizzolara Family Foundation Award for films about conflict and resolution.

Michel Hazanavicius’ silent picture homage “The Artist” won Cannes’ top actor kudo for lead Jean Dujardin and also stars Berenice Bejo, John Goodman and James Cromwell. Pic’s U.S. release is set for Nov. 23.

Nabbed by Paramount at Sundance, where it picked up the Grand Jury prize for best picture as well as an acting kudo for Jones, “Like Crazy” hits U.S. theater Oct. 28.

Full HIFF slate of about 80 features is set to be announced next week.
