According to a report from Variety, Daniel Craig will be making an appearance at the upcoming 60th Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off in mid-May.
Craig will be appearing alongside The Golden Compass (a movie adaption of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials) director Chris Weitz as selected scenes from the film are planned to be screened at the festival. Co-star Nicole Kidman will most likely not be in attendance due to filming committments in Australia.
Taking a small break from the James Bond role, Craig plays Lord Asriel in the film. ‘All the characters in the Pullman books are so rounded and rich and fantastic,’ he previously commented.
Some of the other films confirmed for the festival include James Gray’s We Own the Night, the Coen brothers’ No Country for Old Men, Ocean’s Thirteen, Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino’s contribution to Grindhouse. Martin Scorsese will be the guest of honour and David Fincher’s Zodiac is tipped to be the closing-night film. Click here for all the details.
