Uma Thurman - Uma Thurman And Jude Law For Cannes Jury

Uma Thurman and Jude Law will be part of the jury at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

The stars - who worked together in 1997 science-fiction movie 'Gattaca' - will sit on the 64th panel which will be presided over by 'Taxi Driver' legend Robert De Niro.

Hong Kong director Johnny To, Argentine actress Martina Gusman and Norwegian writer Linn Ullmann will also appear on the jury when the festival takes place from May 11-22 in the South of France.

Uma, 40, is best known for roles made famous by director Quentin Tarantino, starring in 'Pulp Fiction' and the 'Kill Bill' franchise while British actor Jude has recently finished filming his role as sidekick Dr. John Watson in Guy Ritchie's 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel opposite Robert Downey Jr..

This year the festival's opening film will be Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris' starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard with a cameo from France's first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

Festival director Thierry Fremaux explained the movie was chosen because it is a "love letter" to the French capital.

He said: "'Midnight in Paris' is a wonderful love letter to Paris. It's a film in which Woody Allen takes a deeper look at the issues raised in his last films; our relationship with history, art, pleasure and life."

The Cannes Film Festival is part of a bi-continental celebration of the Tribeca Film Festival, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
