September’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) will host the Gala world premiere of actor Mike Myers’ debut doc Supermensch, which looks at Hollywood talent manager Shep Gordon (pictured).

Details about the doc, which is backed by A&E IndieFilms, were first unveiled yesterday (July 22). The film tells the story of Gordon’s rise through the industry and his achievements, which include inventing the modern day ‘celebrity chef,’ philanthropic endeavors, and living life in the fast lane.

It will include interviews with Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse, as well as others. Bob DeBitetto, David McKillop and Molly Thompson will serve as executive producers for A&E IndieFilms.

The news comes after realscreen yesterday revealed four docs set to premiere at this year’s TIFF, including new works from Alex Gibney, Jennifer Baichwal and Errol Morris.

The 38th TIFF takes place from September 5-15.
