The Toronto International Film Festival just announced their 2011 line-up this AM, a deluge of cinematic riches and thanks to their website, we have an overabundance of first look riches too. So here’s your first look at Jude Law and Rachel Weisz in “360,” the new film by Fernando Meirelles, known for “City of God” and “The Constant Gardener.”
The cast also includes Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Jarnel Debouze, Karl Markovic, Maria Flor, Juliano Cazarr and it was penned by Peter Morgan (“The Queen“).
The only TIFF info listed so far is the brief synopsis in the press release line-up.
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s classic “La Ronde,” in 360, director Fernando Meirelles and screenwriter Peter Morgan combine a modern and dynamic roundelay of original stories into one, linking characters: from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of love in the 21st century. Starting in Vienna, the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix into a single, mesmerizing narrative. Stars Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz and Ben Foster.
The other slice of info is that, while called a relationship drama originally, the TIFF site describes it as a “dramatic thriller fueled by the notion of how sexual relationships can transgress social boundaries.”
No word on a release date yet as there is no distributor yet. That will likely land during TIFF ’11. More info when we have it.
