Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive."
Cannes artistic director Thierry Frémaux has added several highly anticipated films to the festival's official lineup.

Fest regular Jim Jarmusch's vampire love story "Only Lovers Left Alive" -- starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska -- has been added to the main competition selection. Jarmusch's breakout film "Stranger than Paradise" won the Camera d'Or in 1984.

Also included --out of competition --is Claude Lanzmann's "Le Dernier des Injustes." Lanzmann directed the nine-plus-hours Holocaust documentary "Shoah" (1985) and will be revisiting that topic in "Le Dernier," a documentary about the Adolf Eichmann trial.

Three films were added to the Un Certain Regard sidebar, which awards the Camera d'Or to an up-and-coming director: "My Sweet Pepperland" (Hiner Saleem), "Tore Tanzt" (Katrin Gebbe) and "Wakolda" (Lucia Puenzo). 

The full Cannes Classics lineup -- already noted to include a restoration of "Vertigo" -- will be announced April 29th.
