PARIS -- The 35th Deauville American Film Festival will kick off with a romantic romp through the ages when New Line's "The Time Traveler's Wife" opens the festival on September 4th, organizers said Tuesday.

The 10-day ode to US cinema has added several films to its previously announced lineup, including Competition titles Jonas Pate's "Shrink" starring Kevin Spacey and Miguel Arteta's "Youth in Revolt" with Michael Cera, Justin Long and Ray Liotta.

Josh Goldin's Matthew Broderick-starrer "Wonderful World" will premiere in the territory out of competition alongside Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles," Paola Mendoza and Gloria La Morte's "Entre Nos" and US summer blockbuster Neill Blomkamp's "District 9."

Documentaries "Facing Ali," "Outrage" and "William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe" will all premiere in the "Uncle Sam's Docs" sidebar.

Andy Garcia, who will be in town for an homage to his acting career, will give a masterclass on Saturday, Sept. 12 for public cinephiles.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet's feature film jury will also include actor-screenwriter-director Bruno Podalydes and actress Deborah Francois and Maiwenn's Cartier Revelation jury has added actress Louise Monot to its star-powered team.

The Deauville American Film Festival runs Sept. 4-13 in the posh Normandy beachside town.

At the very least, perhaps Richard and Claire could go (if they're available).

It seems that they are using the film festivals to build critical and media buzz before the actual release. That's a good strategy. :)

For this festival I expect that some of the Brits might show - it's a short flight for them; plus perhaps Richard Linklater.

Here is one more news for M&OW:

A guy from News 8 in Austin twittered that M&OW will have an Austin premiere.

This is not good news, nor particularly relevant to the 99% of non-Australians on here. But as I must suffer, so must you, lol.

According to Greater Union Cinemas, "after checking with our National Film Department, we can confirm that [Me And Orson Welles] does not yet have an Australian distributor".

It is truly truly cruel.

A guy in London (who I assume had been at the press screening they've done there recently afaik) wrote a new review for M&OW:

I'm sorry for the news spamming, but this just ROCKS. And I'm sure you'll appreciate it, given you share my hatred of posers :)

@adammshankman you tweet a lot adam... (via @zzacefron) and you aren't Zac Efron!

Also, MTV has an article with Robert Rove up here.

This seems to confirm that there is talk but nothing is set in stone... just like Marc Malkin initially reported.
