The 2015 Cannes Film Festival unveiled the first part of their official selection earlier today. It was announced that Emily’s upcoming movie “Sicario” is selected for the competition of the festival which is very exciting news. The movie is directed by Denis Villeneuve and Emily stars alongside Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. The running time is 1h45 according to the official website. The festival runs from May 13-May 24.
“Sicario” (Denis Villeneuve, U.S.). The Canadian director is no stranger to Cannes, which screened his films “Cosmos” (1996, Directors’ Fortnight), “August 32nd on Earth” (1998, Un Certain Regard) and “Polytechnique” (2009, Directors’ Fortnight). Since then, Villeneuve has become one of the most sought-after talents in Hollywood, and he cracks the competition for the first time with this crime drama starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and Jon Bernthal, and set against the backdrop of the Mexican drug trade.

Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft co-direct and Sava co-wrote the script with Dean Lorey. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2016.
“When Emily and John came in and performed their first scenes of the movie together… it was magic,” said Sava.
“I can think of no other way of describing what they brought to the film. We had to literally go back and re-storyboard the sequences because they took us to places we never dreamed. Owen and Zoe came to life when Emily and John spoke”
Sava produces for Blue Dream Studios alongside George Lee and Marcus Englefield of Storyoscopic Films, Jamie Thomason and Leiming Guan.
