The Toronto International Film Festival just announced the first batch of titles for this year’s line-up and it was announced that “Spotlight” got selected for the festival. The movie will be part of Special Presentations and it will be an International Premiere (which indicates that it’s very likely the movie will screen at the Venice Film Festival, as previously reported).

Runtime: 126 minutes
Principal Cast: Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci, Brian d’Arcy James, Billy Crudup
