Cannes Adds Jim Jarmusch Vampire Drama to Competition Lineup
Claude Lanzmann's "Le Dernier Des Injustes" gets an Out of Competition slot in late festival additions.
Jim Jarmusch's vampire drama Only Lovers Left Alive starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, is a late addition to the Competition lineup for this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Festival organizers said Friday that Jarmusch's latest film would compete for the Palme d'Or, marking the U.S. director's first Cannes Competition entry since Broken Flowers in 2005.
In other late additions, Cannes announced that Claude Lanzmann's Le Dernier des Injustes will run in an Out of Competition slot at this year's fest, while three new films were added to the Un Certain Regard sidebar. They are Hiner Saleem's My Sweet Pepperland; Tore Tanzt from first-time director Katrin Gebbe and Wakolda from Lucia Puenzo.
Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux is known for adding some movies to the Official Selection after it is first revealed. He had signaled he would do so again this year last week when the biggest part of the lineup was unveiled.
The 66th Festival de Cannes runs May 16-May 25.
