Yes, there will be singing hockey players, but don't let them scare you away from the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
While plenty of stars are getting ready to strut down carpets of various shades during TIFF this September, the conflagration of luminaries on opening night promises to be the most -- er, unique.
OK, it's kind of terrifying to think that all of these people will be in one place at one time, especially if you're a sheepish Canadian who cringes at corny displays of patriotism. In case you didn't suffer enough trauma at the sight of Michael Buble dressed as a Mountie at the Winter Olympics, you may want to consider the potential guest list for the world premiere of 'Score: A Hockey Musical' on September 9. The cast for this Toronto-shot tribute to sticks and pucks includes Nelly Furtado, Don Cherry, Theo Fleury and George Stroumboulopoulos. Author Margaret Atwood was in it, too, until her cameo ended up on the cutting room floor. Even so, we wouldn't be surprised if she still came out to add to the almost unquantifiable Canadian-ness of TIFF's first big night.
