Cannes selection speculation

Awards Daily points us to the list of films that are expected to screen in Cannes, which begins May 13. The official selections will be announced on April 23. Ryan, at AD makes a nice little list for us, so I'll post the ones that interest me. You can head on over to AD for the rest.

  • Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock, about 1969 music fest, with Emile Hirsch
  • Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, the Nazi-hunter saga with Brad Pitt
  • Francis Ford Coppola’s Tetro, an Argentine family drama with Vincent Gallo
  • Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant remake with Nicolas Cage
  • Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, horror-thriller with Alison Lohman
  • Pete Docter’s Up, the 3D Pixar adventure with Ed Asner
  • Jane Campion’s Bright Star, a John Keats bio with Ben Wishaw
  • Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, horror in the woods with Willem Dafoe & Charlotte Gainsbourg
  • Ken Loach’s Looking for Eric, about a troubled teen soccer fan
  • Andrea Arnold’s Fish Tank, teen troubles with Michael Fassbender
  • Pedro Almodovar’s Broken Embraces, a noirish melodrama with Penelope Cruz

Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is rumored to be part of the lineup.

The Playlist notes the films that won't be shown at the festival: Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control (opens May 1), The Coen Brother's A Serious Man, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful, and Steven Soderbergh's The Informant.
