Universal’s gay romantic comedy Bros will get its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.

Billy Eichner stars in the story about two men with commitment problems who try to have a relationship. Eichner co-wrote the screenplay with director Nicholas Stoller, and Judd Apatow, Stoller and Josh Church produced. Eichner and Karl Frankenfield served as executive producers.

Eichner is the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film. Bros features an entirely 2SLGBTQIA+ principal cast including Luke Macfarlane, Amanda Bearse, Guy Branum, Guillermo Díaz, Dot-Marie Jones, Miss Lawrence, Eve Lindley, TS Madison, Jim Rash and Monica Raymund.

Universal will release Bros in North America on September 30, two days after its UK launch.

TIFF announced this week that Sanaa Lathan’s feature directorial debut On The Come Up will also receive its world premiere at the festival, which runs September 8-18.
