Cannes Market 2012: Pattinson's 'Mission'; Brosnan & Wilson's 'Coup'; Colfer's 'Lightning'; Cooper's 'Out of the Furnace'; SXSW's 'Frankie Go Boom'

Myriad projects across a range of budgets and genres will be announced and shopped at Cannes. But while some are completed, others are in earlier stages of development and may never see the light of day; having the right talent attached will help get them sold in territories around the world and get the coin necessary for the green light.

A French teaser for David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" looks like the love child of "Shame" and "Scarface."
