May plays Zoe Hall, a 17-year-old who uses her survival skills, learned from her ex-military father (Jane), to fight for her life, and those of her fellow classmates, against some live-streaming school shooters. Voltage Pictures has picked up world sales on the project.

Guadagnino’s COVID-19 Docu

Luca (“Call Me By Your Name?”) Guadagnino shot his 12-minute short, “Fiori, Fiori, Fiori!” on a smartphone after the COVID-19 outbreak. Traveling from Sicily to Milan he knocked on the doors of his childhood friends to discuss their experiences of this exceptional moment in human history.

Venice fest director Alberto Barbera said he was thankful to the filmmakers for bringing the films to the Lido, calling them “two irreducibly different models of filmmaking, which are the expression, however, of an identical and compelling creative energy.”

Venice has been adding to its official line-up. Last week, Barbera picked Regina King’s feature directorial debut One Night in Miami and Pedro Almodóvar’s short “The Human Voice” to screen out of competition.

The 77th Venice International Film Festival, which runs Sept. 2-Sept. 12, will be the first major A list film festival to be held since the COVID-19 lockdown.
