Drag Me to Hell and Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant Pegged for Cannes

Besides finding out that Michael Haneke’s next will be presented in b&w, Variety’s article of the titles that we should see announced in one week’s time is a basic re-dotting of the i’s and recrossing of the t’s. The only speculation worth mentioning comes in the shape of the special screening and/or midnight slot status which may include Werner Herzog’s “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me to Hell”.
