German actor Daniel Bruhl (Rush), French star Audrey Tautou (Amelie) and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner are among the biggest names on the Berlinale jury, alongside South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho (Snowpiercer), Golden Bear winner Claudia Llosa (The Milk of Sorrow) from Peru and Italian producer Martha De Laurentiis (Hannibal).
As previously announced, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky will preside over the jury as president at the festival, which will announce the winners at a gala ceremony in Berlin on Feb. 14.
The competition this year promises to be an eclectic mix. The lineup includes established directors with A-list casts, from the likes of Terrence Malick — back in Berlin with Christian Bale/Natalie Portman-starrer Knight of Cups — and Werner Herzog, presenting his Queen of the Desert, featuring Nicole Kidman, Damian Lewis and Robert Pattinson.
Arthouse favorites Pablo Larrain (No), Peter Greenaway (The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover) and Isabel Coixet (My Life Without Me) will also bring their latest, with Coixet’s Nobody Wants the Night to open the festival on Feb. 5.
Among the other Golden Bear contenders this year are Andrew Haigh‘s 45 Years, Diary of a Chambermaid from French filmmaker Benoit Jacquot and Taxi from Iran’s Jafar Panahi.
Out of competition, Berlin will hold gala screenings of such hotly anticipated titles as Wim Wenders‘ 3D drama Every Thing Will Be Fine and the international premiere of Sam Taylor-Johnson‘s Fifty Shades of Grey.
