Joel and Ethan Coen will head the jury for this year's Cannes Film Festival, which takes place May 13 to 24. "Cannes is a festival that has been important to us since the very beginning of our career," the brothers said. "Presiding over the Jury is a special honor, since we have never heretofore been president of anything." Furthermore, this is the first time two people will chair the jury as co-presidents, so heck, that's darn tootin' for everyone! The rest of the jury, as well as the fest's lineup, will be revealed in April.
