If you’re a film lover and don’t feel the desire to go to the Cannes Film Festival then you’re really not much of a film lover at all. And one of the many reasons this is true is because of the great lineup they’ve got there. And the first names announced of who will be there next May are almost unanimously the names of greats.
It was tweeted by Cédric Succivalli, known as a “Cannes insider” (found by GordonandtheWhale) that some of the filmmakers we can expect there are Wong Kar Wai, Pedro Almodovar, Lynne Ramsay, Paolo Sorrentino, Lars von Trier, Virginie Despentes and Terrence Malick. You don’t even have to like all of those people (I don’t) to not be excited by their presence in the South of France in about five months.
Of course Malick is finally showing The Tree of Life »

Filming for Virginie Despentes' Bye Bye Blondie took place over the summer and we finally have some production/set pics gathered from the interwebs (here & here) on a punk, lesbian film we expect to see rocking the Croisette next May. Below, we have Emmanuelle Béart in what would be a pic where her character gets chauffeured around. Below that in the b&w pic, you find you find Dalle with Dp Hélène Louvart (At Ellen's Age) and Despentes. The Les Inrockuptibles article mentions that the release of Baise-moi a decade back hasn't made financing her 2nd film easier, she is filming with a budget of less than 3 million euros and had to cut some key backdrops from the shooting script. Adapted by the director from her eponymous novel, Gloria (Dalle) lives in Nancy. Unemployed, without a family, and with no permanent address, she wastes her days at a local watering hole. »
