Actor-director Xavier Dolan's next feature "The Death and Life of John F Donovan" will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film, starring "Game of Thrones" actor Kit Harington in the lead, will be screened as part of the Special Presentations programme.

"In only a few short years, Xavier Dolan has drawn film lovers all over the world into his personal vision,” TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey said in a statement.

"That vision and his remarkable skill as a filmmaker are on full display in his English-language debut. We are honored to premiere it in Toronto," he added,

The film's cast also includes actors Jacob Tremblay, Natalie Portman, Ben Schnetzer, Susan Sarandon, Jared Keeso, Kathy Bates, Thandie Newton and Sarah Gadon.

The story follows a young actor (Tremblay) as he reminisces on the letters he once shared with an American TV star (Harington), who passed away a decade earlier, and the impact those letters had on both their lives.

The 43rd Toronto International Film Festival will run from September 6 to 16 this year.
