Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Noah Baumbach join the fest’s Screen Talk lineup.

The 66th BFI London Film Festival has added Billy Eichner’s Bros and the U.K. premiere of Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All, starring Timothée Chalamet, Taylor Russell and Mark Rylance, to its lineup.

The cannibal romance Bones and All will be screened in special presentation at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. The film tells the love story between Maren (Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Chalamet), “an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they embark on a thousand-mile odyssey through Reagan’s America.”

Also added to the program is Bros from Eichner, who co-wrote the gay romantic comedy and stars in it alongside Luke Macfarlane. The movie was co-written and directed by Nicholas Stoller (Bad NeighborsForgetting Sarah Marshall) and produced by Stoller alongside comedy hitmaker Judd Apatow (The King of Staten IslandTrainwreckThe Big Sick).

The fest has also added Jafar Panahi’s No Bears, which portrays two parallel love stories with the lovers troubled by hidden, inevitable obstacles, the force of superstition and the mechanics of power” to its lineup. The movie won the special jury prize at the Venice Film Fest.

London Film Fest also unveiled its 2022 Screen Talk lineup with directors Mia Hansen-Løve, Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Baumbach joining actors Janelle Monáe, Bill Nighy and Aubrety Plaza in a series of in-person talks about their careers.
