Steven Spielberg’s Phoenix Movie The Fabelmans Will Premiere at a Toronto Film Festival
It’s been almost a year and a half since news broke that master filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s next movie will be a semiautobiographical flick about his formative years growing up in Phoenix.
News has tricked out since, including that the film will be called The Fabelmans, and it will star big celebrities such as Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams, and Paul Dano. It was co-written by Spielberg and award-winning playwright Tony Kushner.
Yesterday, we got word that The Fabelmans, which according to Deadline “centers on a young man’s discovery of a shattering family secret and an exploration of the power of movies to help us see the truth about each other and ourselves,” will officially premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 8 through 18.
Spielberg moved to Arizona with his family in 1957 at the age of 10. His first film, Firelight, opened at Phoenix Little Theater in 1964.
After its debut in Toronto, The Fabelmans is scheduled to open in a limited release on Friday, November 11, and widely on Wednesday, November 23.
