While Billy Bob Thornton broke out in a big way as a director with "Sling Blade," his efforts behind the camera since have failed to live up to that promise. From the troubled production of "All The Pretty Horses" to little seen efforts like "Daddy & Them" and last year's Willie Nelson documentary "The King Of Luck" (which, to be fair, is still look for a home) he hasn't yet matched that initial spark. But audiences in Toronto will get to see if he's turned it around with his latest "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

Lastly, those who want more Viggo Mortensen in their lives will have a treat with "Everybody Has A Plan" which features a double dose of the actor, as he takes two roles. As twins.

The film follows the story of a man desperate to abandon his unfulfilling existence after years of living in Buenos Aires. Following the death of his identical twin brother Pedro, Agustín sets out to begin his life anew, by assuming Pedro’s identity and returning to the mysterious Tigre Delta region, a maze of islands and rivers that once served as a recreational playground for the Buenos Aires elite, but is now a refuge for Argentina's outcasts and criminals.

Before even going into production, the film's script by writer/director Ana Piterbarg took home the Julio Alejandro Screenplay Award at the 2008 Malaga Film Festival. The movie will make its North American premiere at TIFF where it will be looking for a stateside home.
