Toronto unveiled their first wave of titles on Tuesday, and today it's Venice's turn, with the festival revealing what they'll be unspooling on the Lido. And as usual, it's an auteur heavy selection, but even we weren't expecting American horror legend Joe Dante to be given a slot. But it's a pleasant surprise.

Burying The Ex, Joe Dante

Toronto unveiled their first wave of titles on Tuesday, and today it's Venice's turn, with the festival revealing what they'll be unspooling on the Lido. And as usual, it's an auteur heavy selection, but even we weren't expecting American horror legend Joe Dante to be given a slot. But it's a pleasant surprise.

Indeed, his upcoming "Burying The Ex" has nabbed an Out Of Competition slot. The horror comedy stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper, and it sounds like it'll be something a bit off the beaten path for those in Venice. Here's the official synopsis: Burying The Ex is an outrageous horror-comedy in which a young man's romance with his dream girl takes an unexpected turn when his dead ex-girlfriend rises from the grave... and thinks they are still dating!

Below you'll find new photos, and a 5-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for Canal+ with interviews with Dante, footage from the production and more. No U.S. distribution yet for this one.
