Cannes Film Festival 2018 Lineup Updated: Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built’, Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ & More Additions

It’s almost time for the 71st Cannes Film Festival, and the lineup has just been updated with some very intriguing additions.

While artistic director Thierry Fremaux and festival president Pierre Lescure revealed details of the upcoming festival during a press conference last week, the livestream from the Champs-Elysees came just one day after Netflix withdrew five films that were scheduled to be screened.

With festival organizers altering rules to make films produced for streaming services ineligible for competition, we now know which films will be replacing those original submissions. According to Deadline, Lars von Trier’s “The House That Jack Built”, starring Uma Thurman and Matt Dillon, “Whitney”, Kevin Macdonald’s documentary on the late Whitney Houston, Terry Gilliam’s long-awaited “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote”, and “Fahrenheit 451” by Ramin Bahrani, starring Michael B. Jordan, have all been added.

It’s worth noting that “Fahrenheit 451” is an HBO production. The question of whether movies produced for Netflix and other streaming services should compete alongside theatrical films at Cannes generated controversy last year when festival organizers allowed Netflix to enter two of its films — “Okja” and “The Meyerowitz Stories” — into competition.

The famed fest is set to take place between May 8 and May 19 this year, with Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” and Jafar Panahi’s “Three Faces” among the competition lineup. It will open with Asghar Farhadi’s Spanish-language film “Everybody Knows”, starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” will close the festival.
