Here’s an interesting rumor for you all. The Cannes International Film Festival will soon announce its slate of films that will headline the festival, and among that slate is rumored to be David Lynch‘s latest project, which stars Laura Dern.
Lynch’s project is either a film that he shot under the radar on an extended pilot of Wisteria, is the acclaimed filmmaker’s latest series, which he developed for Netflix, starring Naomi Watts and Laura Dern. Dern will be starring in the project, either as a cameo or a supporting role, but details on the series have been as tight-lipped as possible, with some even questioning its existence.
But since Cannes is not allowing any Netflix projects to screen at the festival, it could be the pilot, but picked on by another channel and/or streaming service, something else…or nothing at all. Until an official announcement is made by the festival, Lynch’s mysterious new “secret” project is nothing more than a rumor, but it is an interesting one at that. Other rumored titles to premiere at the festival are David Cronenberg‘s Crimes of the Future, Kelly Reichardt‘s Showing Up, George Miller‘s Three Thousand Years of Longing, and Ruben Ostlund‘s Triangle of Sadness.
It is also rumored that Asghar Farhadi would be the president of this year’s jury, which wouldn’t be a good idea since he’s been accused of plagiarism with his movie A Hero. It was reported that Farhadi was found guilty of plagiarism, but that report was quickly debunked, as the verdict is still pending.
