Nicole Kidman's Nashville-Shot Stoker at Cannes 2012?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 3, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Making the rounds on the Internet today is a list of possible 2012 competition titles supposedly leaked by the Cannes Film Festival. With the world's most prestigious film fest not set to announce its titles until April 19 — coincidentally, the day the Nashville Film Festival kicks off — the leak has been denied and just as eagerly spread on both sides of the Atlantic.

It's easy to see why the list has caused such excitement. If this is what the movie year 2012 brings — Cronenberg does DeLillo, PTA does L. Ron Hubbard, Terrence Malick does something in fewer than dog years — we could be looking at another 1999. Of particular local interest on the list is Stoker, the Nicole Kidman psychological thriller shot in Nashville last fall by South Korean director Park Chan-wook. (We thought we dreamed the director of Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance made a movie in Music City, until we saw his autographed picture on the wall at Gloria's Korean Kitchen.)

According to Indiewire, Cannes says the list is bogus, but various reports suggest the titles are credible contenders. At any rate, it sounds like May might be the earliest we'll hear any confirmation about the cameos reported on Stoker's set. In the meantime, check out the list below, and salivate.
