St. Vincent
Let’s start out with “St. Vincent” a bittersweet indie comedy that stars the elusive Bill Murray. Murray is notoriously hard to cast, because he’s hard to track down; he has no agent and he basically has a lawyer who you drop things off to like scripts, letters, desperate pleas, etc. and when Murray is good and ready he takes a look through some of it. And sometimes, if you’re lucky, the material or request will appeal to the actor and he’ll reach out (the actor infamously even ghosted on James L. Brooks after tentatively agreeing to star in “How Do You Know” in 2010 and then when unable to reach him, Brooks just went and cast Jack Nicholson as a favor).

Ned Rifle, Hal Hartley, Aubrey Plaza
In 1997, Hal Hartley released "Henry Fool," one of the best films of his career, but no one seemed to notice, even though it won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes. But Hartley knew he had something with the characters and world he created and in 2007 he dropped a sequel, "Fay Grim." It was far less satisfying than its predecessor, but now in 2014 he's capping the trilogy with "Ned Rifle," and hopefully it will close the series on an up note.

Pawn Sacrifice
Furrowed brows, bad suits, worse haircuts—it can only mean one thing: chess. And that game of mental strategy is at the center of "Pawn Sacrifice," which heads to Toronto to make its World Premiere.

We're only three actors in, and "Black Mass" is already serving up an abundance of dudes we really like. When he's not falling over backwards into Helena Bonham Carter's closet for costumes, Johnny Depp does some of his most fascinating work, while Joel Edgerton usually owns whatever he's in. And with the pair already signed up for the gangster pic "Black Mass," they're letting one more major talent into their midst.

Hal Hartley’s recent work hasn’t been as high profile as his films back in the ‘90s, but it looks like the director is back in action yet again, with a continuation of one of his best known pictures. This time, the project is “Ned Rifle,” which is a follow-up to his previous films “Henry Fool” and “Fay Grim.” Parker Posey, Liam Aiken, and Thomas J. Ryan are all returning to reprise their characters, starring alongside Gemma Arterton. Production on the film is slated to begin later this year with Fortissimo Films taking on sales rights in Cannes.
