Uma Thurman, Jude Law Join Robert DeNiro Make Cannes Jury Star Power High
It’s a very star studded jury next month for the Cannes Film Festival. Uma Thurman and Jude Law are going join head juror Robert DeNiro on the main jury, along with director Oliver Assayas– a Cannes favorite–and Hong Kong filmmaker Johnny To, Argentinian actress Martina Gusman, American-Norwegian writer Linn Ullman (daughter of Liv Ullmann), Chad filmmaker Mahamat Saleh Haroun, and Chinese producer Nansun Shi. DeNiro, Thurman, and Law– sounds like a law firm–add to the star power coming to Cannes like crazy. The restaurants, nightclubs and hotels are going to be jammed with them, and the likes of Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, Woody Allen, Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, and so on. And that’s just people associated with films. The word is that Jane Fonda will be there, too, with L’Oreal, and even more Hollywood luminaries. It’s going to be a crowded Croisette, that’s for sure!
