Earlier this month the 30th Toronto International Film Festival announced three more gala presentations for this year’s event, including two world premieres and one North American premiere.
The world premieres are Joe Wright‘s Pride & Prejudice, the first direct screen adaptation of Jane Austin‘s classic novel in 65 years (2004 saw Gurinder Chadha‘s loose adaptation Bride & Prejudice) and Curtis Hanson‘s In Her Shoes, while the North American bow is for John Madden‘s Proof.
Deepa Mehta‘s Water will open the 30th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 8th. The film, a world premiere, is one of 25 films announced yesterday by the festival. Others include the North American premiere of Ang Lee‘s upcoming Brokeback Mountain, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, Randy Quaid, Linda Cardellini and Anna Faris and will screen in the Masters section.
