Hollywoodnews.com: Some films were expected (hello, “The Tree of Life”). Some were complete surprises (Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In”). But just about every title announced as part of the 64th Cannes Film Festival carried serious weight and anticipation.
Malick, Almodovar, Miike, Von Trier, Ramsay and Allen are the heavy hitters in Cannes’ official Competition.
Outside the boundaries, Cannes will be hosting the world premiere of the fourth “Pirates” film, with Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz expected to attend. And Jodie Foster continues her “Beaver” press tour with a stop on the Croistette. Is that a good fit?
The official Cannes lineup was made this morning in Paris. We have the full list below:
Feature Film Jury
Robert De Niro, President – Actor, Director / USA
The Short Film And Cinefondation Jury
