With the New York Film Festival already landing Robert Zemeckis' "Flight" to close out the the fest, and Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi" to kick things off, they've added another big World Premiere to their lineup as the Centerpiece Selection: David Chase's "Not Fade Away."

The debut feature film from "The Sopranos" creator stars a nice ensemble including Jack Huston, Will Brill, John Magaro, Brad Garrett, Bella Heathcote, James Gandolfini and Lisa Lampanelli, in a coming-of-age tale about three Italian-American kids, (Magaro, Brill, Huston) who form a rock band in the 1960s. Along with the announcement, NYFF dropped some new pics as well and it looks like this one is going to be fully embracing its period setting that will see the shifting social tides coming into play. And not only that, but it's gonna rock too.

The lengendary Steve Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band fame produced the soundtrack, and with Huston revealing last year the film's fictional band The Twylight Zones were jamming, could they swing by NYFF for a performance as well? We'll soon see. The New York Film Festival runs from September 28th to October 14th.

    Wow Venice, TIFF and NYFF have great line-ups this year, can't wait to see the reviews of this film.

    Saw this last year, and it was a huge disappointment. John Magaro's the lead, and he was really bad, like an earnest junior Ken Marino, all smirks and no charisma. Interested to hear the critical response at NYFF.

    I'm gonna have to agree with MS here. The thing that disappointed me the most was just how I felt by the end of it. Being the length it is, it doesnt really have anything to say about the 60's that hasn't been said before. But the music is great as expected of course.
