Canadian films, American stars bound for TIFF 2015

Quebec director’s Jean-Marc Vallee’s collaboration with Jake Gyllenhaal, an outer space thriller starring Matt Damon and a gangster film topped by Johnny Depp are among the films heading to the Toronto International Film Festival this September.

Organizers announced a slate of gala and special presentations this morning stacked with buzzy titles and big-name directors.

Gyllenhaal stars in Demolition, Vallee’s first movie since the Oscar-nominated Wild. The film will open the festival.

Damon stars in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, about an astronaut stranded on the red planet while Depp helms Scott Cooper’s Black Mass, about mobster Whitey Bulger.

Atom Egoyan’s Remember, featuring Canadian Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau, is also on the list.

In addition to Remember, other Canadian titles include Deepa Mehta’s Beeba Boys, Paul Gross’s war saga Hyena Road and Lenny Abrahamson’s Room, — a Canada/Ireland co-production based on Emma Donoghue’s bestselling 2010 novel of the same name.

Other titles headed to Toronto include Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, Charlie Kaufman’s crowd-funded, stop-motion animated Anomalisa, Michael Moore’s Where To Invade Next and Cary Fukunaga’s Netflix initiative, Beasts of No Nation.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs Sept. 10 to 20.
