“Borg/McEnroe” To Open Toronto Film Fest

Janus Metz’s “Borg/McEnroe,” starring Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason as tennis legends John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg respectively, will serve as the Opening Night Gala film at the 42nd Toronto International Film Festival.

Ronnie Sandahl penned the film about the epic rivalry between the Swedish legend and the brash American which all came to a head during the 1980 Wimbledon Championships.

Stellan Skarsgard also stars in the film which NEON will release in North America in 2018. The premiere will be held at the Roy Thomson Hall on September 7th with the festival running through September 17th.
