Cate Blanchett was already on her way. Same goes for Clive Owen. And Ryan Gosling. And George Clooney!

Big big stars scheduled this year to show their projects at the Toronto International Film Festival and now… even bigger stars. In fact, it’s shaping up to be an Oceans 13 reunion of sorts.

Matt Damon will return to my home town to host the One x One benefit gala on September 9th. Matt hosted last year and his friend Brad Pitt just happened to be in town. Brad made an appearance at the event of course and chances are he will make another one.

Because Brad’s movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford has just been announced as a special presentation at TIFF!!!

George, Matt, Brad…together in Toronto.

And Wyclef is coming back too. He and Shakira and Richard Gere and Sarah Ferguson all expected at One x One and … maybe Keira Knightley too?

Keira’s Atonement has also been added to the TIFF Slate in addition to Battle in Seattle directed by Stuart Townsend, long time boyfriend of… Charlize Theron. Yet another A list superstar who will most definitely come to support her man. But oh wait…there’s more.

One of the most highly anticipated movies – I’m Not There, directed by Todd Haynes of Far From Heaven, the film features several renowned actors interpreting Bob Dylan. Among them: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Heath Ledger, and Julianne Moore. Heath back in Toronto? Last year, he was off his head. Perhaps a repeat performance?

Get ready Toronto… TIFF is around the corner. Last year I was on party duty for eTalk. This year, as is the case every year, eTalk will be everywhere.

And it’s going to be Mayjah!
