After bringing Life During Wartime to the festival in 2009, Happiness director Todd Solondz is returning to Toronto International Film Festival with his upcoming film Dark Horse next month. We posted the first photos last week, but TIFF has revealed a “teaser,” which is really a short clip. Starring Jordan Gelber, Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Christopher Walken, Aasif Mandviand and more, one can see Solondz is continuing with his off-beat comedy. Check out the quick teaser below via YouTube.
A thirtysomething guy with arrested development (Justin Bartha) falls for a thirtysomething girl with arrested development (Selma Blair), but moving out of his junior high school bedroom proves too much and tragedy ensues.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 8th to 18th.
Are you a fan of Solondz’s work? What do you think of this first clip?
