Whip It TIFF
Several new titles were added to the Toronto International Film Festival schedule this week including Dorian Gray with Ben Barnes (yum), and the Private Lives of Pippa Lee so Keanu Reeves could come home.
There’s also a Coen Brother’s film and yet another Colin Farrell film Triage which means Colin would be in town to support two projects this festival, keeping him in Toronto longer? Michelle already sent an email to me and Duana wondering if we’ll be throwing down at an afterparty somewhere.
And then there’s Drew.
Her directorial debut Whip It starring Canadian Ellen Page will have its world premiere – yes! – at TIFF.
Drew likes it in Toronto. She shot Grey Gardens in Toronto. And she’s just been nominated for an Emmy for Grey Gardens. The Emmy Awards go down immediately after the festival. Sounds like Drew is looking forward to September.
But first – she’s working on Going The Distance in New York, spotted on set yesterday arm and arm with a colleague while Justin Long lurked around showing off his big biceps.
And again, if you haven’t already, the Whip It trailer below. Really, really can’t wait for this one.
