A sequel to a horror anthology movie, an experimental film from James Franco and new works starring Sarah Polley, Rob Corddry and Matthew McConaughey are among the newest additions to next year’s Sundance Film Festival, organizers announced Thursday.
The festival’s selections for its Spotlight (dedicated to movies that have played at other festivals), Park City at Midnight (reserved for thrillers and raunchy comedies) and New Frontier (focused on experimental projects) sections include 20 movies and seven art installations.
The works join the 32 dramatic and documentary competition films that were announced Wednesday; the festival’s narrative and nonfiction premieres, the most high-profile movies at Sundance, will be revealed on Monday. The festival, considered the nation’s top launching pad for movies made outside the studio system, runs Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah.
In the festival’s Midnight program, the new films include “S-VHS,” a sequel to last year’s Sundance title “V/H/S,” and “Hell Baby,” a horror comedy work from “Reno 911!’s” Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon that stars Corddry.
