‘In and Out’ preems at Toronto fest

TORONTO — “In and Out,” the story of a small-town high school teacher whose sexuality comes under public scrutiny, will be screened as a world premiere gala at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival, fest organizers said Thursday.

Frank Oz directed a cast including Kevin Kline, Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon, Debbie Reynolds, Wilford Brimley, Bob Newhart and Tom Selleck. Scott Rudin produced and Paul Rudnick wrote the comedy presented by Viacom’s Paramount Pictures in association with Spelling Films.

Fest officials also announced the world premiere of “Fairy Tale — A True Story,” directed by Charles Sturridge. The film, another Paramount presentation, concerns two girls whose photographs appear to prove the existence of fairies. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini set out to find the truth.

Cast members include Peter O’Toole and Harvey Keitel.

Wendy Finerman (“Forrest Gump”) and Bruce Davey (“Braveheart”) produced while Ernie Contreras wrote the screenplay based on a story by Albert Ash, Tom McLoughlin and Contreras.
