Kirsten Dunst's new period movie MARIE-ANTOINETTE has been selected to compete at the coveted Cannes Film Festival in May (06). The SOFIA COPPOLA-directed film, co-starring Spider-Man actor Jason Schwartzman, sees a 19-year-old Viennese girl became the queen of France in 1744 - before being famously beheaded. Marie-Antoinette is one of the early contenders for the Cannes top prize - the Palme d'Or. Director Ron Howard's long-awaited The Da Vinci Code, starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou will open the 59th Cannes Film Festival, which runs between 17 and 28 May (06).
