TIFF releases star-studded guest list

- August 21st, 2012

stars coming to TIFF

So it’s that time of year again. We’re almost upon the 10-day stretch in September when cinéastes and autograph hounds jostle with one another to get a glimpse of the Hollywood glitterati who will be gracing Toronto sidewalks when TIFF comes to town Sept. 6 -16.

And while 2011′s lineup featured a Hollywood who’s-who that included Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Madonna, this year’s guest list is hot enough to have the paps staking out every nook and cranny of the Ritz-Carlton. Johnny Depp (and Winona Ryder – separately, but still awkward), Will Smith, Adam Sandler, Colin Firth, Jennifer Lawrence, Ryan Gosling, Keira Knightley, Halle Berry, Bruce Willis and Penelope Cruz are just some of the stars headed to Hogtown.

For Twi-hards who were counting on spotting KStew during her rumoured coming out for On The Road, she isn’t mentioned on the official list so put away those voodoo dolls.

For the rest of you film fans, here’s a partial list of who is coming. Get your point-and-shoots ready and plan your spot on the red carpet accordingly.
