Eastwood will debut a new film at TIFF for the first time since 1990, when he was here with “White Hunter Black Heart.” The 80-year-old director’s “Hereafter” casts Matt Damon as a “blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife.”
“It’s a beautiful film,” festival co-director Cameron Bailey said. “In a way, it’s in line with the themes he’s been dealing with since ‘Unforgiven,’ and in a way it takes him a step further.
“And I like that he’s still continuing to take new steps as a director. I mean this is a guy who could easily rest on his laurels, and he never does.”
George Miller couldn't show any clips from Animal Logic's Happy Feet 2, but revealed that Pink would compose "epic" songs for the film and Matt Damon and Brad Pitt would voice "tiny krill".
