Nicole Kidman and British filmmaker Lynne Ramsay will join president Steven Spielberg in deciding the winner of the 66th Palme d’Or next month.
The Cannes Film Festival announced early on Wednesday morning  the star–studded competition jury.
The line-up will also include recent Oscar winners Christoph Waltz and Ang Lee, French star Daniel Auteuil, Romanian director Cristian Mungiu, Bollywood actress Vidya Balan and Japanese director Naomi Kawase.
Ramsay hit the headlines last month when she departed Jane Got a Gun after failing to turn up on the first day of shooting due to an alleged disagreement with the producers.
