Spike Lee’s WWII pic “Miracle at St. Anna” will world preem at the Toronto Film Festival.

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.
