Vincent Perez is headed to the French Riviera…
The Cannes Film Festival has just added new films to its Official Selection list, including Roman Polanski’s Based on a True Story, starring the 52-year-old half-Spanish actor.
Based on a True Story, which also stars Eva Green, will screen out of competition.
The film is based on the novel by Delphine de Vigan and was co-scripted by Olivier Assayas. It tells the story of a writer who gets involved with an obsessive admirer after the release of her latest book.
Meanwhile, Santiago Mitre’s La Cordillera has been added to the Un Certain Regard lineup.
The 36-year-old Argentine film director’s film centers on the president of Argentina, Hernán Blanco, who is facing a very important decision. He’s participating in a meeting between different state leaders, which takes place in La Cordillera. From there, in the middle of the Summit of Latin American presidents, he will have to be able to solve a very complicated personal matter that can affect both his private and public life.
The Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 17–28, 2017.
