As the Cannes Film Festival ramps up, expect plenty of deal-making news regarding casting, director hires, and distribution as producers find the cash to hire actors and directors, and get studios on board to finance and distribute their movies. For example, IM Global has announced it will shop nine movies to buyers at the festival including the supernatural thriller Spectre from director James Wan (Insidious). Variety reports that Nicole Kidman is in talks to star in the film.
Kidman is also circling the drama Our Wild Life and earlier this year she signed on to star opposite Colin Firth in Chan-wook Park’s Stoker. Kidman will next be seen alongside Nicolas Cage in Joel Schumacher’s Trespass.
