Will Smith joins Cannes film festival jury

Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jessica Chastain will sit on the Cannes jury when the festival kicks off next month, according to BBC

The pair, both former Oscar nominees, will help choose the Palme d'Or winner from films including Michael Haneke's Happy End and Sofia Coppola's Beguiled.

They are joined by the likes of Chinese X-Men actress Fan BingBing and Paulo Sorrentino, whose recent hit TV series The Young Pope starred Jude Law.

The jury is being presided over by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar.

The festival runs for two weeks in May, thankfully not clashing with Smith's headline gig with DJ Jazzy Jeff at Blackpool's Livewire event in August.
