More TIFF announcements, more major additions, so many world premieres at this year’s film festival including the Midnight Madness line-up and more potential award winners to the schedule covering the entire spectrum from elder Hollywood statesman to dirty tramps and roughnecks.
Clint Eastwood will be in Toronto with Hereafter starring Matt Damon. Matt Damon in Toronto again. Always.
On the other hand, Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox’s Passion Play will screen at TIFF too. And closing the festival this year will be the long-awaited, at least for me, Last Night with Keira Knightley, Guillaume Canet, and Sam Worthington.
Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Oscar follow-up 127 Hours will make its world premiere in Toronto which means James Franco should be in attendance. And Will Ferrell in Everything Must Go, perhaps a return to his Stranger Than Fiction form from a few years ago. And Milk Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black directs Jennifer Connelly in What’s Wrong With Virginia, also a world premiere.
Midnight Madness includes :
- Liv Tyler and Ellen Page in Super
- Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, and Demi Moore for Bunraku
- Hayden Christensen and Thandie Newton in Vanishing on 7th Street
Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck are indeed bringing I’m Still Here to TIFF. What does that press conference look like? What do those interviews look like? Watch the trailer and then imagine it. Amazing.
I head to TIFF right after Labour Day with coverage for etalk. Can’t wait! We can further discuss during today’s LiveBlog.
