Colin Farrell - Colin Farrell to be joined by stars at Oscar Wilde party

Colin Farrell will be joined by a host of celebrities when he is honoured at a pre-Oscars this month.

The 'Seven Psychopaths' star will be celebrated at the eighth annual Oscar Wilde: Honouring the Irish in Film party at 'Lost' producer J.J Abrams' Bad Robot Productions in Santa Monica on February 21 and stars including Liam Hemsworth, Jason O'Mara, Jason Schwartzman and Lily Collins are expected to attend.

Lionsgate vice chairman Michael R. Burns will also be feted at the prestigious event, which has previously recognised 'My Week With Marilyn' star Michelle Williams, 'Bridesmaids' actress Melissa McCarthy, 'Once Upon A Time's Sarah Bolger, 'Atonement' actress Saoirse Ronan and 'The Tudors' actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

The event was created by the US-Ireland Alliance - a non-profit dedicated to educating Americans about contemporary Ireland and to strengthening the relationship for future generations - in order to recognise the contributions of the Irish in film and television and as a glitzy networking event.

Dublin based acoustic indie folk duo the Heathers are set to perform along with Julie Feeney and Declan O'Rourke at the red-carpet event, which is scheduled to take place in its traditional spot on the Thursday night before the Academy Awards.

Colin - who recently completed filming the new Disney movie 'Saving Mr. Banks' alongside Tom Hanks - will appear in a number of big budget movies later this year, including the action feature 'Dead Man Down' and in May he will also be heard opposite Beyonce and Amanda Seyfried in the Fox animated film 'Epic' from the creators of 'Ice Age.'
