John Woo, Alex Gibney Movies Added to London Film Festival Lineup

John Woo’s Japan-set police thriller “Manhunt” and Alex Gibney’s nonfiction murder mystery “No Stone Unturned” are among new additions to the lineup of this year’s BFI London Film Festival.

No Stone Unturned” will be in the Debate strand at LFF, where it will make its international premiere. It reopens the case of the Loughinisland massacre in Northern Ireland in the 1990s. The film was set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year but was pulled at the last minute because of legal issues.

Manhunt” sees Woo return to the police-thriller genre that helped seal his international reputation. The film centers on a lawyer who finds himself suspected of murder and on the run from a Japanese police officer.

Also added to the festival lineup is Xavier Legrand’s “Custody,” which scooped the Best Director and Best First Feature awards s at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month and follows a couple battling for custody of their son. Another Venice title, “Nico, 1998,” Susanna Nicchiarelli’s biopic of the iconic performer and Velvet Underground vocalist Nico, is another addition to the lineup.

The new titles will join previously confirmed movies including “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “Breathe,” “Battle of the Sexes,” and “Downsizing.” Cate Blanchett, David Fincher and Takashi Miike will all take part in Festival Talks at the festival.
