Thompson on Hollywood

Many of us have already reported that Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life is going to Cannes, mainly because the fest had banked on booking it last year and was severely disappointed (and out the cost of a few hotel rooms) when Malick wasn't able to make it. I checked with stateside distributor Searchlight last week and they confirmed that it was going in advance of its May 27 stateside release, but could not say if the film would be in or out of competition. That call is being made by French distributor Europa and Summit International, which handles the film overseas. In any case, this means that Tree of Life Cannes faves Brad Pitt and Sean Penn will likely be walking the red carpet of the Palais.

Variety is weighing in after The Hollywood Reporter, Screen and indieWIRE on what the likely arrivals on the Croisette will be. We will have to wait until the official announcement on April 14 to find out which auteurs make the cut.
