The 21st Hamptons International Film Festival has named the Sony Pictures Classics pic Kill Your Darlings to open the fest; the Paramount Vantage-distributed Alexander Payne-directed Nebraska for its centerpiece, and the Steve McQueen-directed 12 Years A Slave to close the deal. Latter is a Fox Searchlight/New Regency production that has arguably gotten the strongest critical reaction of the Oscar pics unveiled here in Toronto. The fest runs October 10-14.
