The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival has announced its second wave of programming. Included in the 75 added titles are new work by Hayao Miyazaki (“The Wind Rises,” which recently had its Japanese premiere), Sean Durkin (miniseries “Southcliffe”), Alex Gibney (“The Armstrong Lie,” newly acquired for stateside release by Sony Pictures Classics), Kevin Macdonald (“How I Lie Now,” starring Saoirse Ronan and Tom Holland) and James Franco (Cormac McCarthy adaptation “Child of God,” making its North American premiere).
Also included is Alain Giraudie’s Cannes entry “Stranger By the Lake,” and Guillaume Canet’s “Blood Ties,” starring Marion Cotillard and Clive Owen.
Two films starring the late Cory Monteith (“Glee”), who died last month from a drug overdose at age 31, are also part of the lineup. Josh C. Waller’s “McCanick,” in which Monteith plays a hustler struggling with a drug addiction (see picture below), and “All the Wrong Reasons,” announced previously, where Monteith plays a department store worker.
