Toronto Film Fest: Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson star in 'Felony' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Warrior and The Great Gastby star Joel Edgerton not only stars in Felony, opening at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival — he also wrote and produced it. The actor’s solo screenwriting debut feature is a thriller, focusing on the split second decision of Edgerton’s character, a police officer, to lie about a tragic accident. The synopsis for the film reads:

Three detectives become embroiled in a tense struggle after a tragic accident that leaves a child in critical condition. One is guilty of a crime, one will try to cover it up, and the other attempts to expose it. How far will these men go to disguise and unravel the truth?

In the exclusive clip below, Edgerton is confronted by fellow officer Tom Wilkinson and an intense conversation follows.

Felony debuts at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 10. The festival runs Sept. 5 – 15.

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' director John Madden on filming in India

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, directed by John Madden, dunks seven veteran British actors — Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Maggie Smith, Ronald Pickup, and Celia Imrie — into the hot, steamy inner sanctum of India, playing retirees who take up residence at an old hotel more dilapidated than originally advertised. Madden tells EW about the experience filming in and outside the Indian cities of Jaipur and Udaipur, from the heat on set to the difficulty of getting sound and the right shots as crowds flocked around the cast and crew.

'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel': Director John Madden on that amazing cast, and filming in the 'chaos' of India -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

This Friday, American movie theaters will be blessed by two ensemble movies boasting a dream cast of top-tier actors in their field. It’s fair to say that the vast majority of audiences will only see one of them: The superhero opus The Avengers.

But some lucky, adventurous moviegoers will treat themselves to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which has arguably assembled the most accomplished company of British acting talent since the final Harry Potter movie: Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey), and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), as well as two actors just as adept, if likely unfamiliar, to most Americans, Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones’s Diary) and Ronald Pickup (Prince of Persia: Sands of Time).

The film follows a group of new retirees who for various reasons throw caution to the wind and travel to an Indian retirement hotel (run by Patel’s character) that they found on the Internet. “We’re blessed with a pretty decent pool of actors in that age range in the U.K.,” director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) tells EW with a chuckle. “It was a beautiful piece to cast.” And with a cast like this, Madden was determined to play to everyone’s strengths.  READ FULL STORY
