Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures, and while TIFF will look a bit different this year -- featuring drive-in screenings and virtual red carpets -- the film festival is not skimping on its usual star power amid the ongoing pandemic.
"The names you already know are doing brand new things this year, and there's a whole crop of exciting new names to discover," said TIFF artistic director and co-head, Cameron Bailey.
Ahead of its TIFF debut, One Night in Miami has been bought up by Amazon Studios. "Regina King is a force of nature -- mastering her craft in front of the camera as we've seen in her extensive body of work, and now taking her talent behind the camera," Amazon's Jennifer Salke said in a statement.
