Salma Hayek & Vincent Cassel to Star in Matteo Garrone's Tales

Matteo Garrone may be one of Italy's finest and most innovative filmmakers working today, having had back-to-back Cannes Film Festival Grand Prize jury winners with the crime-thriller Gomorra and the modern-day spoof on fame and celebrity with Reality. Now he's getting ready to helm his first English language film The Tale of Tales and he's just signed on Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel to play the leads.

The film will start shooting in Italy in the spring, claiming to be Garrone's most ambitious film to date as it will give traditional Italian tales a modern twist.

Garrone's production company Archimede Film is producing with Jean Labadie’s Paris-based leading arthouse shingle Le Pacte, who will distribute in France, while HanWay Films will handle international sales.

There isn't much of a chance of the movie being ready for this year's festival season, but one can probably expect The Tale of Tales to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015 and then show up at other festivals that Fall.
