So....that's it? With early rumors pointing to Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," Johnnie To's "Drug War," Gabriele Muccino's Gerard Butler-starring comedy "Playing For Keeps," Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land," and Tom Hooper's "Les Misérables," former Venice Film Festival head Marco Mueller has unveiled this year's slate for his inaugural Rome Film Festival, and those expecting big stars and big-name movies will be disappointed.
