It’s been years in the making but we’re finally going to see Natalie in True/Paris je T’aime. Melody Nelson found this confirmation.
PARIS (Hollywood Reporter) – “Paris, je t’aime” (Paris, I Love You), a collection of 20 love stories set in the French capital and directed by a host of internationally acclaimed filmmakers, will open the Cannes Film Festival sidebar Un Certain Regard on May 18, organizers said Tuesday.
The movie, which has been in production for several years, is told in five-minute segments each focusing on one of Paris’ 20 administrative districts, or “arrondissements,” then joined by transition elements.
Directors involved include Alfonso Cuaron, Gurinder Chadha, Gus Van Sant, Isabelle Coixet, Joel and Ethan Coen, Nobuhiro Suwa, Alexander Payne, Tom Tykwer, Walter Salles and Wes Craven. French participation includes Olivier Assayas, Gerard Depardieu and the live-action debut of animator Sylvain Chomet (“Les Triplettes de Belleville”;) .
The cast includes Bob Hoskins, Elijah Wood, Emily Mortimer, Gena Rowlands, Juliette Binoche, Leonor Watling, Ludivine Sagnier, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi and Willem Dafoe.
The 59th annual Cannes Film Festival begins May 17 with director Ron Howard’s “The Da Vinci Code.”
So that’s V, Paris, Goya and Magorium coming out this year. And maybe Domino One as well. How lucky are we?
Tamara has word of a possible Nat appearance on Spike TV tonight.
I don’t know if you know already, but I caught a commercial on Spike TV that said they would be “chatting with Natalie Portman at 9PM,” during commercial breaks during the showing of ‘Caddyshack.’
Hopefully someone can maybe encode that for the rest of us.
And finally, a reminder that the V premiere is in London tonight. Hopefully Nat will make an appearance.
