'Man of Steel' cast will also be on hand at fest

Meg Ryan will be feted by the Taormina Film Festival, the Italian fest on the island of Sicily where she will hold an onstage master class about her acting career.

As previously reported, this year’s Taormina opener on June 15 will be Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot “Man of Steel.”

Fest has now announced that Snyder and “Steel” protag Henry Cavill, and co-star Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane, will be making the trek for the bow in Taormina’s ancient Greek theater.

Fest is being reconceived by artistic director Mario Sesti and general manager Tiziana Rocca as a mainstream showcase focussed mostly on horror and comedy genres during this edition, which will run June 15-22.

Taormina will also feature a Russian cinema focus being unveiled today in Cannes at the Italian Pavillion where a delegation of Russian producers will meet and network with Italo counterparts.
