Preparations have been underway for the much-anticipated opening screening of horror flick The Dead Don’t Die as a legion of stars arrived in the French Riviera this week.

The Jim Jarmusch-directed film stars Disney Channel alum Selena Gomez, 26, and Star Wars actor Adam Driver, 35, as the pair fight for survival when the undead begin to plague the sleepy town of Centerville. 

The Dead Don’t Die, which is tipped for release in the UK on July 19, is in the running for numerous awards at the eleven-day event, including the coveted Palme D’Or award – the highest accolade presented at the festival.

It will go up against Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, starring Leonardo DiCarprio and Margot Robbie, Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You and 18 other hopefuls for the gong.

The 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival will showcase 21 competition titles, plus out-of-competition, midnight and special screenings at the Palais des Festivals from Tuesday until May 25. 

Actress Elle Fanning, French graphic novelist Enki Bilal and the Oscar-nominated director of The Favourite, Yorgos Lanthimos, will be among jury members during the annual event.  

Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu will preside over the panel that decides on prizes, including the top Palme D’Or award.

The jury for the festival’s 72nd edition will also include Pawel Pawlikowski, the Polish filmmaker and screenwriter named best director at Cannes last year for the impossible love story Cold War.

Maimouna N’Diaye, who has directed documentaries and acted in films such as Otar Iosseliani’s Chasing Butterflies will also sit on the panel, alongside two other female directors.

Kelly Reichardt, whose Wendy and Lucy starring Michelle Williams was a contender for Cannes’ Un Certain Regard award in 2008, directed 2016’s Certain Women.
