The weather may have turned cooler in Vancouver, but Hollywood North is as hot as ever, with stars aplenty flocking to our awesome city in October.

From musical megastars to acting icons, you never know who you might see strolling along Kits Beach.

Here are 23 famous faces you might be able to spot in Vancouver this month:

Charlize Theron

Mad Max megastar Charlize Theron is in Vancouver this month to film Tully, which reunites her with Young Adult writer Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman.

Theron plays Marlo, a mother of three, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother and forms a unique bond with the surprising and sometimes challenging young nanny.

Earlier, Theron posted this shot from the very secretive set…

  • Not many other cast members have been revealed, but Charlize Theron is sure to be joined by her co-star Mackenzie Davis, a Vancouver local.

Little detail has been released about The Predator (codenamed Ollie), the latest reboot of the Predator franchise, but Benicio Del Toro is rumoured to have a role in the movie.

The film, directed by Shane Black (Iron Man 3) and produced by original Predator producer Joel Silver, is set to start filming in Vancouver in October.

Stephen Amell

The star of Arrow, Stephen Amell, will also be in Vancouver in October, as filming of the hit TV show continues.

As a treat for fans, in the last few days he posted a video of himself dressed as Arrow, debating whether to go to Starbucks and order a latte in costume.

Vera Farmiga

Rihanna

Surprisingly, superstar Rihanna may well join Farmiga in Vancouver, for a one-episode role in Bates Motel, playing Marion Crane.

Crane was the character killed off in the book and Alfred Hitchcock’s film version of Psycho, to which the TV show acts as a prequel. Since this is the final season of Bates Motel, speculation is rife over exactly how much we will see of Rihanna – and whether we will see her meet her comeuppance.

Kanye West’s October 17 show in Vancouver has nearly sold out – no surprise given that fans with floor tickets will be able to dance underneath him as the stage floats above them.

But after his wife Kim was brutally attacked in Paris, it’s possible West may decide not to continue touring right now.

If so, it would be the third show West has cancelled in Vancouver in as many years. Here’s hoping he can still make it – and maybe brings Kim with him for a bit of West Coast R&R.
