The organizers for the 67th Cannes International Film Festival announced the international stars who will be on the jury to decide which films in competition take home prizes. Oscar winner Jane Campion will be the jury president.
Two well-known American stars will be on the panel. Oscar nominee Willem DaFoe, who just appeared in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, will be joining Bling Ring and Lost in Translation writer/director Sofia Coppola.
French actress Carole Bouquet (That Obscure Object of Desire), Iranian actress Leila Hatami (A Separation) and actress Jeon Do-yeon (Secret Sunshine) of South Korea are also members of the jury.
Other members of the jury include Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, whose Drive earned him Best Director at the 2011 Cannes Festival, Mexican actor/director/producer Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel), and Chinese director Jia Zhangke. His A Touch of Sin won Best Screenplay at last year’s festival.
This year’s festival will start on May 14 with Grace of Monaco, which will be shown out of competition. Films in competition include Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher and Michel Hazanavicius’ The Search. The event wraps on May 25.
