Oh hell yes. As if the Cannes Film Festival lineup this year wasn't stellar enough with Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives," the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis," James Gray's "The Immigrant," Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" and more all headed to the south of France, now one more title we had predicted would make it in -- and were bummed not to see in the initial announcement -- is coming.

Only Lovers Left Alive Tilda Swinton Tom Hiddleston

Oh hell yes. As if the Cannes Film Festival lineup this year wasn't stellar enough with Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives," the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis," James Gray's "The Immigrant," Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" and more all headed to the south of France, now one more title we had predicted would make it in -- and were bummed not to see in the initial announcement -- is coming.

Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" has been added to the competition slate at Cannes. Damn. Starring Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin and Tom Hiddleston, the film follows Adam, an underground musician who reunites with his centuries long lover Eve (Swinton), but finds their relationship interrupted by her wild sister, Ava (Wasikowska). And oh yeah, they're vampires. So yes, we're super excited for this one.

Also being added to Cannes: Claude Lanzmann’s "Le Dernier Des Injustes" will play out of competition, while the Un Certain Regard sidebar has added three titles -- Hiner Saleem’s "My Sweet Pepperland," Katrin Gebbe’s "Tore Tanzt" and Lucia Puenzo’s "Wakolda." 

The Cannes Film Festival runs May 15-26. [Deadline]
