Berlin – New films from multi-hyphenate James Franco and rising Bollywood star director Abhishek Kapoor (Rock On!) are among the highlights in the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival, which announced its finalized lineup Tuesday. Interior, Leather Bar, an experimental film directed by Franco with Travis Mathews, will have its international premiere in Berlin. Franco and Mathews star in the feature, a “reimagining” of the 40 minutes of lost footage from William Friedkin’s 1980 S&M thriller Cruising. Franco also stars in Maladies from director Carter, which will have its world premiere in the Panorama section in Berlin.
