TORONTO (AP) - Bruce Springsteen is heading to the Toronto International Film Festival for the world premiere of a documentary about one of his classic 1970s albums.

“The Promise: The Making of `Darkness on the Edge of Town’” by director Thom Zimny premieres Sept. 14 at the festival.

The film includes new interviews of Springsteen and the E Street Band, along with footage of home rehearsals and recording sessions shot from 1976-78.

At the festival, Springsteen also will participate in a discussion moderated by actor Edward Norton about the documentary and the relationship between his music and American filmmaking.

The Toronto festival, one of the world’s biggest film showcases, runs Sept. 9-19.
