Big stars, new movies on the way for Chicago film festival

The 48th Chicago International Film Festival will kick off on Oct. 11 and run through Oct. 25.

Among the films that will be featured is action-comedy Stand Up Guys, which was produced by Chicago native Tom Rosenberg. The film’s stars — Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Juliana Margulies, Fisher Stevens – will attend the red-carpet gala to be held in the Windy City.

The festival will close with Chicago-born Robert Zemeckis’ mystery thriller Flight, which stars Denzel Washington as a pilot who miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe.
