“The Rover” (directed by David Michod)
Toronto seems a safe bet for director David Michod’s follow-up to 2010’s “Animal Kingdom,” a crime drama taking place in the Australian desert in the near future that sees Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson teaming up to track down the gang of thieves that stole Pearce’s car. The setting automatically gives off “Mad Max” vibes, which could make it unlikely to show up at Venice, unless they’re interested in adding some counter-programming to their normally straight-laced lineup.
