I'm told by several sources that Spielberg's reps and the folks at the Cannes Film Festival are in negotiations to bring Paramount's highly anticipated "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" to Cannes for its official worldwide premiere in May.
The premiere would precede the scheduled opening for what we also call "Indy 4" on Thursday, May 22nd. The star studded event would easily be the centerpiece of the festival, akin to the premiere last year of "Ocean's Thirteen." I'm told that Spielberg, perhaps producer George Lucas, and stars Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Shia Leboeuf, Karen Allen, and others would make the walk up the fabled red carpet at the Palais. Talk about sizzle! Sacre bleu!
