Directed by Michael Grandage and starring Harry Styles, the film marks the sixth world premiere announced by the Toronto festival.

The 2022 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) lineup continues to trickle in with the reveal of British director Michael Grandage’s My Policeman as the sixth confirmed world premiere for its 47th edition.

The Prime Video romantic drama stars Harry Styles (Don’t Worry Darling), Emma Corrin (The Crown) and David Dawson (The Last Kingdom), and is based on the Bethan Roberts novel about an ill-fated love story in the 1950s that haunts those involved for decades. Additional cast includes Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding), Linus Roache (Homeland) and Gina McKee (The Rook).

My Policeman is directed by Grandage and written by Ron Nyswaner. Producers are Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti-Schechter Films, Robbie Rogers, and Cora Palfrey and Philip Herd of Independent Entertainment.

The film is currently set for a limited U.S. release on Oct. 21 before it streams wide on Amazon’s Prime Video on Nov. 4.

The bulk of the TIFF lineup is still to be announced, including the opening and closing features. Titles announced so far include Clement Virgo’s Toronto-set Brother, Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Sanaa Lathan’s On the Come Up, Nicholas Stoller’s Bros and, most recently, Gina Prince-Bythewood’s The Woman King.

TIFF runs from Sept. 8 to 18.
