Johnny Depp is also expected to make an appearance as the director of “Modì,” a biopic about Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. The film stars Riccardo Scamarcio as Modigliani and Al Pacino as art collector Maurice Gangnat.

The festival is set to run from August 28 to September 7, with Isabelle Huppert presiding over the jury. Despite Cannes gaining ground in premiering award-season movies, Venice remains the top destination for studios and streamers looking to build Oscar campaigns.
