Refresh for latest…: The lineup for the 72nd Cannes Film Festival is being unveiled this morning from the UGC Normandie theater here on Paris Champs-Elysées. There are already a handful of titles certain to be among the Official Selection which fest chief Thierry Frémaux will announce today, while he may also have some surprises up his sleeve and is likely to hold a few tidbits back to be added over the next few weeks before the Riviera shindig kicks off on May 14.
The festival earlier announced that Jim Jarmuschs zombie horror comedy The Dead Dont Die, from Focus, has opening night honors, in competition. And as Deadline previously confirmed, Paramounts Elton John musical fantasy biopic Rocketman will blast off on May 16. Alejandro G Inarritu is President of the jury this year, one that as ever, has been rife with speculation.
We do not expect to hear any Netflix or Amazon features included on the roster, marking the first time in four years without a film from either streamer. However, as Deadline has reported, at least one episode of Nicolas Winding Refns Amazon series Too Old To Die Young is looking at a special slot.
