The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Monday morning that it had chosen the film for its inaugural live commentary event, which goes down Aug. 15 at 7:30 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
Elwes, who played the dashing Man in Black on a quest to save a beautiful princess (Robin Wright) from an evil prince, will be on hand to presumably share anecdotes and behind-the-scenes details with Reiner.
Reitman was not involved in the project — but is not new to this type of live event. The "Up in the Air" filmmaker regularly directs all-star casts through live readings of classic film screenplays for Film Independent at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Tickets for the event are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members.
