Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” confirmed for Toronto, London film fests

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: For those who had lingering doubts as to whether or not Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” had any intentions of entering the 2010 Oscar race, this news should put them to rest.

Boyle’s drama, about mountain climber Aron Ralston (James Franco) and the hours he spent trapped under a boulder while canyoning in Utah, has been announced as the closing night film for the BFI London Film Festival. Screen Daily reports that Boyle’s film will conclude a fest that will be launched by another Oscar hopeful, Mark Romanek “Never Let Me Go.”

But that’s not all. In the report, Screen Daily also confirms that Boyle’s film will receive its world premiere at Toronto as a “Special Presentation,” confirming its placement in the Oscar race.

Fox Searchlight must have liked what they saw in Boyle’s finished print. Now we’re eager to lay our eyes on it, and we will once TIFF rolls around in September.
