‘Cyrus’ to screen at Locarno

Festival to pay homage to John C. Reilly

ROME — Fox Searchlight’s hot relationship laffer “Cyrus” will launch into Europe from the Locarno Film Festival, which is also paying homage to its co-protag, John C. Reilly.

Helmed by Jay and Mark Duplass, “Cyrus” will have its European preem, out-of-competition, on the Swiss fest’s 7,000-seat outdoor Piazza Grande on Aug. 7, with the Duplasses and Reilly in tow.

Fox Searchlight opens “Cyrus” Stateside this weekend.

A Sundance standout, “Cyrus” is a character-based comedy about a budding relationship between two single-again adults (Reilly and Marisa Tomei), complicated by the woman’s son.

Locarno will pay special tribute to Reilly with a spotlight celebrating the Chicago-born thesp, perhaps best known for playing offbeat characters, such as narcissistic porn star Reed Rothchild in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights.”

Also unspooling on the Piazza Grande will be a sneak peak of Gallic avant-garde artist/helmer Philippe Parreno’s new feature-length work “The Invisible Boy,” and of Parreno’s “Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait,” about French soccer icon Zinedine Zidane.

The full Locarno lineup will be announced July 14.

The 63rd edition of the prominent event dedicated to international indie fare will run Aug. 4-14.
