Director Michael Bay and producer Lawrence Bender also join the program for the festival focused on American film.
Deauville is adding star power to this year’s program, with Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Olsen set to receive the Hollywood Rising Star awards at the 41st edition of the film festival.
Director Michael Bay and producer Lawrence Bender will also be honored with career tributes, festival organizers announced. They’ll join Keanu Reeves, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Patricia Clarkson and director Terrence Malick in being honored during the week. Bender will also give a talk focusing on his passion for politically motivated films.
You didn’t think the first announcement was all there was, did you? TIFF director Cameron Bailey is still dead set on Toronto being the go to for bringing the Oscar goods to his festival and in this announcement today he reveals that Sony Pictures Classics is going all in with I Saw the Light, the Hank Williams biopic starring Tom Hiddleston. This comes just a week after the news that SPC had picked up New York Film Festival’s Closing Night film Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead, a film in direct competition with I Saw the Light for a similar Oscar trajectory. SPC also adds Truth, with Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford, to the TIFF mix.

Steve Rogers/Captain America himself, Chris Evans, introduced the Civil War teaser trailer, which got right down to business with brutal fight scenes — crystalizing the conflict between Tony Stark/Robert Downey Jr. and Captain America and other Avengers. Their feud stems from disagreement over their place in the world and how ordinary people view them – as heroes or vigilantes. Or as General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt) sums up, “People are afraid.”
At the end, Paul Rudd/Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s enthusiasm spills forth when he’s brought into Captain America’s faction, and he goes completely starstruck. “I know you know a lot of super … people, so I wanted to say thinks for thanking of me. Thanks for thinking of me.”
Unfortunately Disney/Marvel is not making the trailer or footage available today.
In addition to Evans, Downey and Hurt, returning cast members include Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Tom Holland, and Daniel Brühl. The movie is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
This is the first news we finally have in a while about Elizabeth as Audrey Mae Williams in ‘I Saw The Light’. Indeed, you can find the first still, as well as a scan from the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, coming this Fall. Moreover, we’ve added a picture taken during the filming of it.
This fall, it seems two musical biopics will be slugging it out. Don Cheadle takes on jazz legend Miles Davis in “Miles Ahead,” while Tom Hiddleston goes country as Hank Williams in “I Saw The Light.” And the first look at Thor’s brother in a ten gallon hat is here.
Elizabeth Olsen, Cherry Jones, Bradley Whitford, Maddie Hasson, and Wren Schmidt co-star in the Marc Abraham (“Flash Of Genius”) directed movie about the musician who hit the top of the charts and the depths of despair. Here’s the official synopsis:
I SAW THE LIGHT, the story of the legendary country western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life.
“I Saw The Light” opens on November 27th.
