Debut images from a pair of upcoming films being shopped at Cannes have been officially unveiled. Firstly, the How to Make Love to An Englishman image reveals star Pierce Brosnan in the “sexually charged and sophisticated romantic comedy” from director Tom Vaughn (What Happens in Vegas). Brosnan plays a Cambridge University professor who meets his match in Salma Hayek, but is forced to face the music when a complicated romantic entanglement emerges with her graduate student stepsister, played by Jessica Alba. The film is currently in post-production but doesn’t yet have a release date.
Additionally, the first Your Right Mind image highlights star Katherine Heigl as a former country singer fighting for custody of her daughter. Ami Canaan Mann (Texas Killing Fields) directs the contemporary romance, which stars Ben Barnes (Chronicles of Narnia) as a traveling folk singer who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Hegil’s character. The film also stars Clea DuVaal, Sheryl Lee, Emily Alyn Lind, and Ryan Bingham. Check out both first-look images after the jump.
