HollywoodNews.com: The film acquisitions market is warming up at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Here’s a rundown of those titles that are generating some buzz:
“Super” directed and written by James Gunn (“Scooby-Doo,” “Dawn of the Dead”) about a husband who creates a vigilante alter-ego Crimson Bolt after his wife is seduced by a drug dealer. Film stars Ellen Page, Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler and Kevin Bacon. Film is playing in the festival’s Midnight Madness section.
Per Variety, Will Ferrell drama “Everything Must Go,” David Schwimmer’s “Trust” and Emilio Estevez’s spiritual odyssey “The Way” are also getting a look by buyers.
Rowan Joffe, who recently penned the George Clooney thriller “The American,” has his film “Brighton Rock” at Toronto which stars Helen Mirren, John Hurt and Sam Riley. The Weinstein Co. is a potential buyer. The plot of “Brighton Rock” described by IMDB: “Charts the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager with a religious death wish.” Film is based on a Graham Greene novel.
Pathe is looking to generating some cash for a Margaret Thatcher biopic “The Iron Lady” which would star Meryl Streep.
