Based on the debut novel by James McBride, who also penned the screenplay, pic stars Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso and Omar Benson Miller as members of the all-black 92nd “Buffalo Soldier” division stationed in Tuscany, Italy.

Fest, which runs Sept. 4-13, will also world preem Steve Jacobs’ “Disgrace,” starring John Malkovich as a South African professor whose relationship with his daughter is tested after an attack; Vincente Amorim’s “Good,” with Viggo Mortensen as a literature professor whose novel is used for government propaganda; and Peter Sollett’s “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings as indie music lovers on a latenight adventure.

The festival announced the North American preems of Paolo Sorrentino’s Cannes jury prize winner “Il Divo,” a biopic starring Toni Servillo as powerful Italian politician Giulio Andreotti; and Kathryn Bigelow’s Iraq cat-and-mouse thriller “The Hurt Locker,” starring Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce and David Morse.

All six titles will screen in the Toronto fest’s Special Presentations program.
