2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties

#20. Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties

Gist: Written by James Gray, with the ensemble cast of Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, James Caan, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, Matthias Schoenaerts and Lily Taylor owning the screen, this is a remake of Jacques Maillot’s Les lien du sang. Canet’s Blood Ties is about 2 brothers, one a criminal, the other a cop, face off over organized crime in Brooklyn in the 1970s.

Prediction: Un Certain Regard but leaning toward the Main Comp if Gray’s Lowlife somehow does not crack the line-up, Canet – the actor who moonlights as a director would be making his first trip to Cannes after monster domestic successes of the mention worthy Tell No One (2006) and Little White Lies (2010). Blood Ties is tagged with a June 13th release, so this would be a timely launching pad.
