Capote pic on Venice sked

'Infamous' will open Horizons section

The world preem of Warner Independent Pictures’ Truman Capote biopic “Infamous” will open Horizons, the Venice Film Festival section dedicated to cutting-edge cinema, on Aug. 31.

Directed by U.S. helmer-scribe Douglas McGrath (“Nicholas Nickleby”), pic stars British thesp Toby Jones as Capote and Sandra Bullock as author Harper Lee. Gwyneth Paltrow, Sigourney Weaver, Jeff Daniels and Isabella Rossellini also star.

Produced by Christine Vachon, Jocelyn Hayes and Anne Walker-McBay, the long-in-gestation $13 million project began shooting in the U.S. in February 2005. That was several months after “Capote,” which was shot for $7 million in just 36 days in Canada, had wrapped.

WIP, which is releasing “Infamous” Stateside this fall, has underlined that, among other differences, its pic focuses more on the writer’s New York glitterati social circle than did “Capote.”

Venice fest runs Aug. 30-Sept. 9.
