Based on a blistering 2012 Vanity Fair article by Marie Brenner, the drama follows Colvin to the front lines of conflicts around the globe as she risks everything to reveal the truth. Pike is joined by supporting cast which includes Jamie Dornan (The Fall, Fifty Shades of Grey), Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones, Spotlight), and Tom Hollander (The Night Manager).
“Gone Girl showed the fire Rosamund Pike can bring to the big screen, and we’re thrilled to give Toronto audiences the first chance to see Pike play the complex, real-life hero Marie Colvin in one of her strongest
performances ever. Heineman’s narrative feature debut has been greatly anticipated — and having just wrapped post-production, the film is now perfectly timed to become the exciting new addition to our Gala lineup.” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of TIFF.
Filmmaker Matthew Heineman says about the premiere:
