Sundance Adds Robert Redford Dramedy, Jonah Hill and James Franco’s ‘True Story’

Sundance Institute has added a pair of world premieres — Robert Redford’s “A Walk in the Woods,” and Jonah Hill and James Franco’s “True Story” — to the lineup of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

A Walk in the Woods” stars Sundance founder Redford as a travel writer who sets out to hike the Appalachian Trail with a long-estranged friend, portrayed by Nick Nolte.  Ken Kwapis directs the comedy-drama from a script by Rick Kerb and Bill Holderman. Emma Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, Nick Offerman and Kristen Schaal also star.

True Story,” directed by Rupert Goold from a script he co-wrote with David Kajganich, centers on disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel (Hill) meeting accused killer Christian Longo (Franco) — who has taken on Finkel’s identity;  his investigation morphs into a game of cat and mouse.

The Sundance Kids section added the U.S. premiere of “The Games Maker” from Juan Pablo Buscarini and starring David Mazouz, Joseph Fiennes, Ed Asner, Megan Charpentier, Tom Cavanagh and Valentina Lodovini.

The Kids section also added “Operation Arctic” from Grethe Bøe-Waal” in a modern-day Robinson Crusoe adventure set in the Arctic; and “Shaun the Sheep,” from Richard Starzak and Mark Burton.

The special events section added the world premiere of Romanian movie “Pioneers Palace B’92” from Bobby Paunescu, set in the wild days of post-Ceausescu Bucharest.

The new frontiers section added three live-action virtual reality experiences by artists Félix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphaël: Herders” and “Wild — the Experience” by Lajeunesse and Raphaël; and “Strangers” by Patrick Watson.

The Sundance Collection will present a digital restoration of  “Paris Is Burning” by Jennie Livingston.
