“Catcher Was A Spy” Pulled From Toronto

One of the more notable titles of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival has had to be pulled from the line-up.

According to Screen Daily, “The Sessions” director Ben Lewin’s upcoming period drama “The Catcher Was A Spy” is now out of the festival with the reason being the film just won’t be ready in time and is still very much in the midst of post-production.

Paul Rudd, Guy Pearce, Sienna Miller, Mark Strong, Tom Wilkinson, Paul Giamatti, Jeff Daniels, Connie Nielsen, and Shea Whigham star in the film about professional baseball player Moe Berg, who was also a spy during WWII.

It’s not clear if the film will be ready in time for the end of the year, but with no distributor locked it’s likely not going to be making a bow now until sometime in 2018.
