French stars Omar Sy and Eva Green part of 2024 Cannes Film Festival jury

The eight-member jury for the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival includes French actor and producer Omar Sy and actress Eva Green, presided by Barbie director Greta Gerwig.

Festival organisers unveiled the jury Monday, with four men and four women, including Omar Sy, one of the biggest names in French cinema, known internationally for hit Netflix show Lupin.

Eva Green, one of the most memorable James Bond actors, recently played Milady in The Three Musketeers and has appeared in a string of Hollywood blockbusters.

Joining them is Oscar-nominated actor Lily Gladstone, who won a string of awards for her performance in Martin Scorsese's 2023 Killers of the Flower Moon.

The 37-year-old will be the youngest member of the jury, which also includes Turkish screenwriter and photographer Ebru Ceylan, Lebanese director and screenwriter Nadine Labaki, Spanish director and screenwriter Juan Antonio Bayona, Italian actor Pierfrancisco Favino, and Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu, who won the 2018 Palme d'Or for Shoplifters.
