NEW YORK (AP) _ The futuristic ``Code 46,'' starring current Oscar nominees Tim Robbins and Samantha Morton, will have its United States premiere on opening night at the South by Southwest film festival.

The film from director Michael Winterbottom (''24 Hour Party People,'' ``The Claim'') is among nearly 200 being shown at the festival, which runs from March 12-20 in Austin, Texas.

``Code 46'' is about an insurance investigator (Robbins) and a woman (Morton) who have an affair, but their relationship is complicated by the proliferation of cloning.

Robbins is up for a supporting-actor Oscar for ``Mystic River,'' while Morton is nominated for best actress for ``In America.''

Also on the South by Southwest schedule, announced Monday, are Lars Von Trier's controversial ``Dogville,'' starring Nicole Kidman; Kevin Smith's ``Jersey Girl,'' with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez; ``Intermission,'' with Colin Farrell; and ``Young Adam,'' with Ewan McGregor.

``We're really excited about the program this year,'' festival producer Matt Dentler said. ``I think it represents a broad perspective of amazing cinema from around the world.''

Among the films on the documentary lineup are ``Bush's Brain,'' about presidential adviser Karl Rove; and ``Super Size Me,'' about the fast-food industry, which earned Morgan Spurlock a directing prize at Sundance.
