Alright folks, the Cannes Film Festival is still underway and we a trio of new projects that have been announced from the Croisette.

Although he’s been keeping busy with various ad campaigns and even co-directed a documentary on Bernardo Bertolucci (review here), it’s still been nearly five years since Luca Guadagnino’s last narrative feature, the sublime “I Am Love.” Thankfully, Deadline reports Studiocanal is putting its weight behind the director’s new film, an as-of-yet untitled “sexy thriller” that’s set in “the Italian island of Pantelleria.” While no other plot details are known, the trade reports Guadagnino is reuniting with Tilda Swinton and bringing along Ralph Fiennes, Margot Robbie ("Wolf Of Wall Street") and Matthias Schoenaerts (“Rust and Bone” and “Bullhead”). Where this leaves his planned adaptation of “A Reliable Wife” is unclear.

He may be known stateside for a pair of mediorcre Mark Walhberg movies – “Contraband” and “2 Guns” – but Baltasar Kormákur is highly regarded in his home country of Iceland thanks to films like “Jar City” and the pretty ace based-on-a-true-story sea-based thriller (think of an Icelandic “All Is Lost”) “The Deep.” So it’s no suprise that the Icelandic director is in such hot demand – he just wrapped the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring “Everest” and is doing the epic “Vikings” next – and Variety reports that he’s added another project to his already-busy plate: the historical drama “Reykjavik.” Titled after the 1986 summit held in the Icelandic capital, the film will chronicle “the meeting of [President Ronald] Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik to firm up a peace treaty.” Michael Douglas is already attached to play the U.S. president. It’s unclear when production will start but it’ll likely come after Kormákur has completed his long-gestating passion project “Vikings.”

Peter Sollet ("Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist") will direct "Philadelphia." No other details but it will shoot in New York in September according to Screen Daily.
