Joel and Ethan Coen Presidents of 2015 Cannes Film Festival
American filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen have accepted the invitation from President Pierre Lescure and General Delegate Thierry Frémaux to preside over the Jury of the 68th Festival de Cannes. This is the first time in the festival’s history that two people will be at the head of the jury. The Coen brothers are no strangers to Cannes, eight of their films have been nominated or won awards at the festival, the last one being 2013’s Inside Llewyn Davis (which won the Grand Prize of the Jury). While serving as Presidents for the festival in May, the two filmmakers will take a break from filming their upcoming project Hail, Caesar which stars George Clooney, Christophe Lambert, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin and Channing Tatum, which isn’t scheduled to be released until 2016.
