The snow and rain are setting in once again, but that isn’t stopping a whole host of film stars from heading to Hollywood North this month.
From rising young stars to legendary heartthrobs, you never know who you might see strolling along Granville Street.
Here are 16 famous faces you might be able to spot in Vancouver this month:
Kristen Connolly, star of The Cabin in the Woods, is likely in Vancouver until June, filming her TV show Zoo, about a scientist investigating a rash of violent animal attacks.
This year has gotten off to a great start for Casey Affleck, who’s already won a Golden Globe for his performance in Manchester By The Sea – and is tipped for Oscar glory too.
It’s about to get even better for the actor and director, who’ll be in Vancouver through February and March to direct and star in his new film Light of My Life, .
The film tells the story of a father and his young daughter who find themselves trapped in the woods – perhaps they’ll get lost on the North Shore?
Better known as ruthless Jackie Sharp on House of Cards, Molly Parker could well be in Vancouver through to June, filming Lost in Space, a TV remake of the 1960s sci-fi series about a family struggling for survival in outer space.
Little detail has been released about The Predator (codenamed Ollie), the latest reboot of the Predator franchise, but 50 Cent 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 scheduled to continue filming in Vancouver until May.
50 Cent may also be joined in Vancouver by Olivia Munn, who is confirmed as starring in The Predator reboot. Munn is still probably best known as brilliant but awkward financial reporter Sloan Sabbith in HBO’s The Newsroom TV series.
Jacob Tremblay is a Vancouver local, but the young actor will be joining Munn on The Predator set in February.
British star Idris Elba, best known for playing Stringer Bell in epic HBO TV show The Wire, will likely be in Vancouver to shoot his new film The Mountain Between Us.
The movie tells the story of two people who survive a plane crash in the mountains, where they are forced to trust each other and find safety while badly injured.
The Mountain Between Us, directed by Hany Abu-Assad, from the novel by Charles Martin, is set to continue filming in Vancouver through February.
Joining Elba in Vancouver will be fellow British actor, Kate Winslet, who plays Ashley Knox to Elba’s Ben Payne.
The star of Arrow, Stephen Amell, will also be in Vancouver in February, as filming of the hit TV show continues.
Amell loves giving fans a sneak peek behind the scenes of the show, like the picture above, as well as sharing his life away from the camera.
Well, #WhiteDwarfStarAlloy powers the #ATOMSuit, but @bulletproof coffee powers me. 😉 Thanks again to @dave.asprey & the @bulletproof team! #Repost @dave.asprey ・・・ Bulletproof Coffee on the set! Some say this suit is powered by a small nuclear reactor…but rumor has it that a certain coffee may be involved. 😉 I met a lot of the crew on @cw_legendsoftomorrow today – amazing how much work goes into each shot. TV looks like hard work! 🙂 #theatom #legendsoftomorrow #bulletproof #bulletproofcoffee
Another TV star hanging around Vancouver right now is Brandon Routh, who’s continuing to film his part as The Atom in Legends of Tomorrow.
Routh’s been posting a few treats for fans on Instagram, including the above shot of The Atom suit he wears in the show.
Of course, Ginnifer Goodwin will likely be out and about around Steveston and Vancouver, filming her usual role of Snow White on Once Upon A Time.
Goodwin will also be joined by her Once Upon A Time co-star Robert Carlyle, who plays Rumplestiltskin in the hit TV show.
Another Vancouver regular, Melissa Benoist, will likely be in town this month, to continue filming Supergirl.
Benoist may also be joined by co-stars Tyler Hoechin and Calista Flockhart; filming continues through April.
In a surprise turn of events, Luke Perry, former teen idol of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame, will be in Vancouver in February to film a new TV series Riverdale.
The show is described as a subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.
South African comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is coming to Vancouver this month to promote his book, Born A Crime and participate in JFL NorthWest.
