The oldest film festival in the world is going big on nail-biters this year, organizers said Thursday, with thrillers dominating the race for Venice's coveted Golden Lion. Stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are expected to be among the A-listers spotted posing on the red carpet or hopping into gondolas at the gala's 74th edition. In the sprint for the Golden Lion, Schrader will go up against hotly-awaited "Mother!" by Darren Aronofsky, the U.S. director behind the 2010 psychological horror film "Black Swan".Oscar-winning U.S. director Alexander Payne's latest sci-fi comedy "Downsizing" will open the show, starring Matt Damon as a man who realizes he would have a better life if he shrank, and Kirsten Wiig as his indecisive wife.Damon also stars in Clooney's dark comedy "Suburbicon".
