Cannes Festival Lineup Brings Together Spielberg, Coppola And Many More

The lineup for the 66th edition of the glamorous Cannes Film Festival has been announced and it’s a pretty impressive one. Some of the highlights include lexander Payne’s road-trip pic “Nebraska,” Joel and Ethan Coen’s ’60s-set folk-music-themed “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Nicolas Winding Refn’s dark-edged revenge thriller “Only God Forgives” and James Gray’s ’20s-set drama “The Immigrant”.

This will be a big year for Cannes, with Steven Spielberg finally returning to the festival as jury president, and a lot of the festival picks are pretty much unmissable. One such film is the HBO-produced Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra”, which Spielberg himself directed. The festival will also host the premiere of Nicholas Reft’s follow-up to Cannes favorite “Drive,” “Only God Forgives,” starring Ryan Gosling as a British gangster hiding in Bangkok’s criminal underworld. The film was backed and co-produced by two Paris based film giants, Wild Bunch and Gaumont and the two studios will share international sales. But, more importantly, new Ryan Gosling flick? Count us in! Oh, and let's not forget Sofia Coppola’s highly anticipated glitzy crime tale “The Bling Ring”. There will certainly be lots to see and a lot of tough competition for the golden palms this year.

Of course, many more worthwhile productions will be making a debut during the festival, which will gather celebrities and industry professionals in the city of Cannes between 15th and 26th May.
