Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Bryan Cranston: the star-stalking opportunities at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival have excellent potential. We’re still waiting to hear if those aforementioned movie stars have sent in their RSVP’s but at the very least, know this: all of them have films coming to this year’s TIFF.
The lineup for TIFF 2012 was revealed on July 24 in Toronto. Your opening night selection is an action-thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt (Looper, from Brick director Rian Johnson). And as the festival continues, Sept. 6 – 16, Toronto will see premieres of films from David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence), Ben Affleck (Argo, starring Bryan Cranston), Joss Whedon (Much Ado About Nothing, starring Nathan Fillion), Terrence Malick (To the Wonder, starring Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem) and Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis (Cloud Atlas, starring Halle Berry and Tom Hanks).
