LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bill Nighy and Rachel Weisz’s British spy tale “Page Eight” has been chosen to close next month’s Toronto International Film Festival, one of the world’s biggest cinema showcases.

Co-starring Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon and Judy Davis, “Page Eight” will bring down the curtain on the festival that runs Sept. 8-18.

Other films added to the Toronto lineup Tuesday include Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage’s thriller “Trespass”; Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard’s Winnie Mandela drama “Winnie”; Gerard Butler’s African missionary tale “Machine Gun Preacher’; Jason Statham and Robert De Niro’s action saga “Killer Elite”; and Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy’s comedy “Hysteria.”

Among previously announced Toronto titles is “From the Sky Down,” a portrait of superstar band U2 that will be the first documentary ever to open the festival.
