The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival has added 22 more films to its already-impressive Galas and Special Presentations line-up.  Among the notable additions are Hayao Miyazaki‘s The Wind Rises, Kevin Macdonald‘s How I Live Now, Guillaume Canet‘s Blood Ties, James Franco‘s Child of God, John Turturro’s Fading Gigolo starring Woody Allen, Sean Durkin‘s (Martha Marcy May Marlene) Southcliffe, and Lee Sang-il‘s Japanese remake of Unforgiven.  This is the point where TIFF attendees’ schedules fall apart.  I love the festival, but it’s incredibly front-loaded, which is unfortunate because that means some very hard choices.  But among these films, The Wind Rises is the one on my can’t-miss list.

Hit the jump for the full list of additions.  The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 – 15th.

Over the weekend, the late Paul Newman’s final production project, Lucky Them, made an investor out of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry. The indie flick, now being exec. produced by Newman’s widow Joanne Woodward, was written by Huck Botko (The Virginity Hit) and Emily Wachtel. According to Variety, Botko will helm the pic which tells the story of a “rock-music journalist assigned to track down her ex-boyfriend.” Currently, Marisa Tomei, Thomas Haden Church, and Alec Baldwin are attached to the project in unspecified roles. Shooting on Lucky Them is expected to begin later this year.
