‘The Way Way Back’ To Close LA Film Festival

The full lineup announced today for the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival includes Nat Faxon and Jim Rash’s coming-of-age comedic drama The Way Way Back. The spendy Fox Searchlight pic has been tapped to close the fest, which runs June 13-23 downtown. The Film Independent-sponsored event includes gala presentations for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Ryan Gosling-starrer Only God Forgives and Ryan Googler’s Fruitvale Station, the Weinstein Company’s Sundance pickup that will play the month before in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes. Pedro Almodovar’s comedy I’m So Excited! was already tapped to open the fest. Here’s the full lineup of more than 200 films, and 22 in the narrative and documentary competition categories, all of which boast world, North American or U.S. premieres:
