Bow Down To De Niro at Cannes

Thursday, January 6 by

One film festival can’t quench Robert De Niro’s insatiabl thirst for cinema. The co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival has accepted the duties of the President of the Jury of the 64th Festival de Cannes. De Niro said with a half-crooked smile: “The Cannes Film Festival is a rare opportunity for me as it is one of the oldest and one of the best in the world.” Guess that means the jury can’t laze about sipping espresso and buttering their croissants this year. De Niro doesn’t tolerate that kind of care-free shit. He wants a decision on the Palme d’Or, and he wants it now. (Deadline)
