London - Films starring George Clooney, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth and Natalie Portman are among more than 300 movies that have been scheduled for this year's London Film Festival.

The line-up was announced on Tuesday and includes more than 300 features and shorts from 67 countries.

The October 13 opener is Never Let Me Go, an unsettling coming-of-age story starring Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield. Clooney plays a world-weary assassin in The American, while Portman is a dancer in ballet thriller Black Swan.

Artistic director Sandra Hebron says the line-up of British films is one of the strongest in years. It includes the highly touted The King's Speech, starring Colin Firth as the stuttering King George VI.

The festival will run from October 13 to October 28.
