Toronto Film Festival will premiere The Song of Names

The Francois Girard film of my novel The Song of Names, with Tim Roth and Clive Owen in the key roles, will have its gala world premiere on September 8 at the Toronto International Film Festival, it was announced last night.

Sony Pictures have bought distribution rights for the United States and will release the film in October.

Decca have bought soundtrack rights to Howard Shore’s marvellous score.

Robert Lantos is the lead producer.

Lots more credits to roll. And incredible performances from the boy actors.

Me, I just wrote the book.

  • Your information is more up-to-date than mine, Norman, so thanks. Me, I just wrote the screenplay.

  • Congratulations. I haven’t read the novel yet, but the talent involved in the film is staggering. I’m especially pleased about François Girard’s direction, as sensitive a director he’s been in the past for films about music.

  • This is so exciting!!!!! It’s one of my absolutely most favorite books. Congratulations, Norman!
