The Toronto International Film Festival has made the initial announcement for its 2014 line-up. While there will be more films announced in the near future, we now know who many of the heavy hitters will be. While the opening night film has yet to be unveiled, the closing night film will be Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos, starring Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci. Bennett Miller’s much buzzed about Foxcatcher (featuring Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in a great cast that includes Mark Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave). Somewhat unexpected is the announcement of Antoine Fuqua’s 80’s show adaptation The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington and Chloë Grace Moretz. We’ll also see Adam Sandler trying his hand at another dramatic role (which he is often good at) in Men, Women and Children from director Jason Reitman. Another pleasant addition is Dan Gilroy’s The Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and Bill Paxton. We’re also getting While We’re Young from Noah Baumbach, I’m a massive fan of his so that makes me happy.
Many more high profile titles were announced today as well. Hit the jump for the TIFF 2014 Line-up of Galas and Special Presentations. Please note that there are plenty of other categories that will be announced soon including the full Midnight Madness, Documentary, and Masters line-up so stay tuned. The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4 – 14th.
