'Only God Forgives' Now Reportedly Opening In Denmark On May 23rd, Is Cannes Calling?

It would seem that Nicolas Winding Refn is doing anything but getting his highly anticipated "Only God Forgives" into theaters. Since the film has wrapped, he's shot a Gucci ad with Blake Lively, a Yves St Laurent spot with Jessica Chastain, and is signed up to direct Sony's "The Equalizer" with Denzel Washington. Meanwhile, his re-teaming with Ryan Gosling remains hidden away -- but it looks like the picture could be gearing up to bring both the director and star back to the Cannes Film Festival.

It would seem that Nicolas Winding Refn is doing anything but getting his highly anticipated "Only God Forgives" into theaters. Since the film has wrapped, he's shot a Gucci ad with Blake Lively, a Yves St Laurent spot with Jessica Chastain, and is signed up to direct Sony's "The Equalizer" with Denzel Washington. Meanwhile, his re-teaming with Ryan Gosling remains hidden away -- but it looks like the picture could be gearing up to bring both the director and star back to the Cannes Film Festival.

While it was previously reported to have landed an April 4, 2013 bow in Denmark, FilmJunkies and IMDB are both saying the picture has been moved back to May 23, 2013. Indeed, the latest issue of Premiere magazine, featuring a new image of Gosling from the film (via The Film Stage, see below) also notes a France bow in May. So is Croisette beckoning for the film? We'd say it's a pretty good guess at this point.  With the festival set to run from May 15-26, there's no doubt they'd want Refn back who took the Best Director prize for "Drive" in 2011. And with Gosling shooting his directorial debut "How To Catch A Monster" in the spring, perhaps he will have wrapped by then to help promo the picture.

So, we'll continue to wait, but it looks like the pieces are coming together. Now how about a trailer already?
