Today’s news that Clint Eastwood‘s Hereafter, Danny Boyle‘s 127 Hours, Dustin Lance Black ‘s What’s Wrong With Virginia?, Casey Affleck‘s I’m Still There and Missy Tadjedin‘s Last Night will show at the Toronto Film Festival (which starts in a mere three weeks) is very good news.
Now I feel as if things are finally kicking in. Not that I wasn’t intrigued with the previously announced titles (including Darren Aronofsky‘s Black Swan, which I have above-average interest in and hopes for), but the Boyle and the Eastwood have upped the voltage. My only problem is with the curious absence of William Monaghan‘s London Boulevard.
Also freshly slated are John Sayles‘ Amigo, Benoit Jacquot‘s Deep in the Woods, Dan Rush‘s Everything Must Go (Will Ferrell as a drunk) and Matt Reeves‘ Let Me In.
Incidentally: I heard a while back from Ophelia Lovibond that William Monaghan ‘s London Boulevard (in which she costars as a character named “Penny”) would probably play Toronto, but it hasn’t been announced. What’s happened?
