The Toronto Film Festival is the unofficial launch of Academy Awards season, but one of this year’s most Oscar-friendly films is taking a pass. Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar, his biopic of the longtime FBI bureaucrat starring Leonardo DiCaprio, will not screen in Toronto or at the New York Film Festival this September, a spokesperson for Warner Bros. tells EW, confirming a Toronto.com report.
J. Edgar is scheduled for a limited release on Nov. 9 before going wide two days later.
