1. “Joel and Ethan Coen to preside over the Jury of the 68th Festival de Cannes.” The director-writers of Inside Llewyn Davis, Fargo, True Grit and others will head up the festival that has rewarded them multiple times in the past.
“’We look forward to returning to Cannes this year’, Joel and Ethan Coen said from the Hail Caesar! film shoot with George Clooney, Christophe Lambert, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin and Channing Tatum. ’We welcome as always the opportunity to watch movies there from all over the world. Cannes is a festival that has been important to us since the very beginning of our career. Presiding over the Jury is a special honour, since we have never heretofore been president of anything. We will issue further proclamations at the appropriate time.’”
