Organizers of the Berlin film festival say Roman Polanski's latest movie, "The Ghost Writer," will have its premiere at the event in February.

Polanski's movie was among a first batch of entries in the festival's main competition that was announced Tuesday. The event runs from Feb. 11-21 and is the first of the year's major European film festivals.

In the film, Pierce Brosnan stars as a former British prime minister who's writing his memoirs with the help of a ghostwriter, played by Ewan McGregor. It's Polanski's first film since 2005's "Oliver Twist."

The 76-year-old director is currently under house arrest in Switzerland, where he awaits possible extradition to the U.S. on a 32-year-old charge of sexual misconduct.
