‘Gangs’ to play out Berlin fest

Miramax pics given prime screenings

LONDON — Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York” has been confirmed as the closing film of the 53rd Berlin Intl. Film Festival.

Pic will screen out of competition Feb. 15, immediately following the fest’s award ceremony.

The selection of Scorsese’s epic means that Miramax movies will bookend the Berlinale, with “Chicago” opening the fest Feb. 6. “Gangs of New York” was co-financed by Miramax and Initial Entertainment Group.

“I’m delighted we will be able to conclude the 53rd Berlinale with this fantastic film,” commented fest director Dieter Kosslick. “Featuring fabulous actors and actresses, Scorsese’s ‘Gangs of New York’ depicts the bloody development towards democratic structures, and bizarre and apocalyptic class relations in New York society of the mid-19th century.”
