Movie great Al Pacino is set to sit down for an interview with British actor Stephen Fry following a special double screening of his two films based on Oscar Wilde's controversial play Salome.

The Scarface icon will be the guest of honour at the British Film Institute event in London, where his 2011 documentary-drama Wilde Salome, which explores Wilde's work, will be shown to the audience.

The screening will be followed by the 2013 drama Salome - Pacino's take on the tragic Biblical story - and a question and answer session with the actor/director.

The event will take place on 21 September (14) and the interview will be broadcast live via satellite into cinemas across the U.K. and Ireland, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gosford Park star Fry has his own connection to Oscar Wilde - he portrayed the Irish writer in the 1997 biopic Wilde.
