Managing Editor 

The Toronto International Film Festival ends Sunday and hundreds of films have been screened since the 11-day festival began. Throughout the years, Toronto has featured a number of Oscar hopefuls that have gone on to Oscar success. Just last year, best picture 12 Years a Slave (2013) was shown at Toronto (along with a number of other nominees). Hoping for the same success, some Tiff films have been met with instant Oscar chatter this year. Here are the top 10 films to generate buzz coming out of Tiff:

Julia Roberts To Front The Secret In Their Eyes Remake

5 September 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the most talked about films of 2010 was the Argentinian thriller The Secret In Their Eyes. Not only did Juan Jose Campanella's chilling tale about a retired detective turned crime novelist win the rousing praise of critics worldwide, it also earned the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. With prestige like this, it's no wonder that an American remake was soon in development. Surprising, is that Julia Roberts has now signed on to star in what is sure to be a deeply dark drama. Deadline reports Oscar-winner Julia Roberts' name is on the lips of countess attendees of the Toronto International Film Festival as Im Global announces her ties to The Secret In Their Eyes as the company pursues overseas distribution. Roberts is set to star opposite Oscar-nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) and Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow. The Secret In Their Eyes will center on a »

Julia Roberts Joins Paltrow & Ejiofor For ‘The Secret in Their Eyes’ Remake

5 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Juan Jose Campanella’s Oscar-winning 2010 film ‘El secreto de sus ojos‘ is getting the Hollywood remake treatment but, saying that, with a darn impressive cast being lined up.

Written and directed by Billy Ray, the man behind the screenplay for Captain Phillips, State Of Play and The Hunger Games, has already confirmed Gwyneth Paltrow and Chiwetel Ejiofor and is now in negotiations with Julia Roberts to come on-board.

Roberts is still at the highest peak for an actor and so can definitely pick and choose the best parts, so if everything goes according to plan this could be one hell of a scoop for The Secret In Their Eyes. The film has this official synopsis:

A retired legal counsellor writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior – both of which still haunt him decades later. »

Julia Roberts Tapped For 'Secret In Their Eyes' Remake

5 September 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you haven't seen "The Secret in Their Eyes," the Argentine crime thriller that ended up winning the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Feature (something of an upset, if we recall correctly), please stop reading this silly post and go watch it. In 129 minutes you can return to this post (it'll still be here), but you will be absolutely woozy drunk in love with the power of cinema and the propulsive nature of Juan Jose Campanella's assured storytelling.

All that said: the American remake seems to have been in the works for forever, but it's finally found a super-a-list star in one miss Julia Roberts.

The announcement was made at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the movie is being shopped (it's being fully financed by independent production unit Im Global), according to the Hollywood Reporter. The report also suggests that the production is going to bend over backwards for the recent Emmy-winning star. »

Julia Roberts joins The Secret in Their Eyes remake

5 September 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Julia Roberts is to star in the remake of Argentine foreign language film The Secret in Their Eyes.

She joins Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow, who signed up to the film earlier this year.

Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray, who will also direct the film, adapted the script from the original crime thriller before rewriting specifically for Roberts, according to The Wrap.

The film will focus on Ejiofor's former MI5 official who heads to Boston, Massachusetts to aid a team of FBI agents investigating an unsolved murder.

The original movie was made in 2009 by Argentine director Juan José Campanella, who also co-wrote the script.

The Secret in Their Eyes claimed the Best Foreign Language Film prize at the 2010 Academy Awards, beating Ajami, The Milk of Sorrow, A Prophet and The White Ribbon.

The film is to begin production in Boston later this year. »

Julia Roberts Learns The Secret In Their Eyes

5 September 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chiwetel Ejiofor are already aboard The Secret In Their Eyes, Billy Ray's remake of the Oscar-winning 2009 Argentinian thriller. They now look set to be joined by Julia Roberts, for whom Ray specifically rewrote his screenplay.Juan Jose Campanella's original film had two male leads to one female, but after Roberts expressed an interest, Ray headed back to his keyboard to accommodate her. It makes for a refreshingly different dynamic at the top of the film, which will already be much changed from its progenitor.Ray's other major task has been to find a way to adapt Campanella's work for a more Us or internationally-flavoured story: finding something that can parallel the focus on Argentina’s military junta and its overtones of corruption.What we know so far is that Ejiofor plays a former Mi-5 agent haunted by an unsolved murder.

Julia Roberts signs up for The Secret In Their Eyes remake

4 September 2014 11:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The brilliant thriller The Secret In Their Eyes is getting a Us remake - and Julia Roberts has just jumped aboard...

Comfortably one of the best thrillers we've seen in the last five years is Juan Jose Campanella's The Secret In Their Eyes, a a quite brilliant piece of work about a retired attorney writing a book, and dealing with an unsolved case.

The film picked up an Oscar, and deservedly so, but now the Argentinian thriller is getting an English language remake, known as Secret In Their Eyes. But there may not be cause for panic, for the remake is in the hands of Billy Ray, the man responsible for the excellent Shattered Glass and Breach.

Furthermore, we now learn that Julia Roberts is taking one of the lead roles. She joins a cast that already includes Gwyneth Paltrow and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Production can't be too far off from starting, »

Calinos veterans launch new Turkish distributor

1 September 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two former executives from Calinos Films have set up a new distribution company, Fabula Films, acquiring all Turkish rights.

The outfit will launch at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

Fabula will be headed by CEO Billur Arikan and VP Alkan Avcioglu, who set up the theatrical division at Calinos five years ago.

At the fast-growing Calinos, they worked on films including The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Raid, Intouchables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Secret in their Eyes, Before Midnight, and Non-Stop.

“Even though it will be our first market under a new company, we will gear up the acquisitions where we left off,” said Gizem Yetim, who will serve as director of acquisitions. “We will continue to look for director-driven projects and arthouse films with crossover potential.”

“We are a very passionate team and we all have similar tastes” Avcioglu said. “We do not care whether the film is arthouse or commercial. If there »

‘Wild Tales’ Breaks B.O. Record for Warner Bros. in Argentina

25 August 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Argentina is going wild over Damian Szifron’s “Wild Tales,” a Special Presentation at Toronto.

But, far from a local comedy, the Cannes competition entry, which boasts impeccable distributor credentials – a Sony Pictures Classics pick-up for North America.; a Warner Bros. Pictures Int’l. buy for Latin America, Spain, and France – has cleaned up most of the world in sales terms via Film Factory Ent.

Germany’s Prokino, Italy’s Lucky Red, the U.K.’s Curzon and Scanbox in Scandinavia are some of the major territory buyers.

In Argentina, distributed by Warner Bros., “Wild Tales” opened to a first-frame 21 million pesos ($2.5 million) and 445,532 admissions, a home-turf all-time record for an Argentine movie. Final figure will probably reach 500,000 when all tix sales are in. Figure, which reps about 65% of total tix sales, bested Universal’s 2013 release of Juan Jose Campanella’s 3D animated feature “Foosball” (17.7 million pesos and 418,280 admissions »

Film Review: 'The Unbeatables'

17 August 2014 1:31 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Premièred at last year's San Sebastian Festival, The Unbeatables (2013) - previously entitled Metegol (Foosball) - is a curious breed of animated adventure fodder, and not merely because it's Academy Award-winning director Juan José Campanella's follow-up to the widely different The Secret in Their Eyes (2009). In his youth, skilled foosball player Amadeo (Rupert Grint) wiped the floor with Flash (Anthony Head), a cocksure bully who was left red-faced. Years later, while Amadeo has struggled to make much of a name for himself, Flash has become a pro football player. He returns to his hometown with the intention of bulldozing it flat and erecting a massive stadium in its place.
