And here’s the weekly ration of tidbits for you all …
-The latest additions to the Cannes festival competition have been announced, and Planetarium is not among them, so we have to wait for the French premiere in October to see the film. Until then, the current rumors suggest a slot in Venice Film Festival.
-Talking about Planetarium, Vanity Fair France features an article and interview with Lily-Rose Depp this month, in which is included a nice reference to how Natalie played an important role in the selection of the Johnny Depp´s daughter for the movie:
She (Natalie) was who suggested the name of Lily-Rose Melody Depp to Rebecca Zlotowski, the Planetarium director. “Natalie sent me a picture of her while I was looking for a French speaking American to play her little sister aged 13, tells Vanity Fair in the latter. The resemblance between the two was quite disturbing. “The director is gone to meet her:” In May, we met. We walked in Paris, had a drink, bought a few things, she recalls. I liked her light, her grace, her femininity voluntary and no clutch. The cast stopped there.
