We cannot WAIT to see Leo as a young J. Edgar Hoover!
Even though Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar opens on November 9th, we've just learned that the film will premiere on Nov 3 at the American Film Institute's 25th annual AFI Fest!
Not only that, but Clint's biopic will actually open the festival, which runs from Nov 3 - 10 at Hollywood venues including Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre, and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Here's what AFI President/CEO Bob Gazzale had to say about the J. Edgar director:
"Clint Eastwood is an American icon – one whose work as a director, actor, producer and composer not only stands the test of time, but also continues to add new, rich chapters with each passing year."
Such nice, true words! We're VERY excited for this film, and we have a feeling it'll be a big presence at the upcoming Academy Awards show!
Are U excited for J. Edgar? Will U go see it at AFI Fest???
