Docs and Midnight Madness at Toronto '09

More titles have been added to the Toronto International Film Festival's line-up. I have them listed below, sorry if I'm repeating any of these. Some of the notable titles below include Diablo Cody's screenwriting follow-up to Juno, Jennifer's Body; the sequel to [REC]; the sequel to Ong Bak; another sure-to-be-terrible addition to George A. Romero's Dead Saga; a documentary about The White Stripes, from one of the directors of, um, Out Cold; and a documentary compiled of found footage from a Henri-Georges Clouzot film with Romy Schneider entitled L'enfer de Henri-Georges Clouzot. Read more about all the films that have already been announced at their official website.
