Toronto International Film Festival Announces First Roster

With the Toronto International Film Festival approaching its September 6th – September 16th event dates, Deadline has reported that the first official listing of films set to “WOW” audiences this Fall has now been publically announced.

Winning the honor of Gala Opening is Rian Johnson‘s time traveling action thriller Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a sci-fi bounty hunter who must fight his future self, played by Bruce Willis.  Johnson’s directorial debut Brick was a fantastic pulp-noir type high school murder mystery told with loads of creativity, so I have no doubt Looper will shine with its festival premiere honors.

Other notable films set to premiere at TIFF include Ben Affleck’s Argo, David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, and Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep.
