Forget any dreams about Todd HaynesI’m Not There and maybe even Paul Thomas Anderson‘s There Will Be Blood turning up as part of the Cannes Film Festival’s “Director’s Fortnight” section. A fairly connected source has called and said “it’s been clear for a while that there was no way in hell the Haynes’ film was going to be ready in time….it’s very [tapestry-like] and had to come down in length, but the nature of it with all these people playing [Bob] Dylan makes it difficult to trim down in the right way. I mean, they can’t just go in and whack out Cate Blanchett”s footage, so the Cannes people were never even shown it.” Same thing with the Paul Thomas Anderson, he says: “It wasn’t submitted and was never going to be….it just wasn’t ready.”
