Tim Burton Does the Cannes-Cannes

Tim Burton, Mia Wasikowska Disney Enterprises, Inc.

The French Riviera isn't just the playground of the stars, it's also their Wonderland.

Tim Burton has been selected to head up the jury at the 63rd annual Cannes Film Festival, thereby making and/or breaking the Hollywood hopes of auteurs everywhere by deciding which film will take home the coveted Palme d'Or.

Though any films featuring stop-motion animation, Gothic themes, men in eyeliner or Johnny Depp just got a bit of an edge. (OK, anything with Johnny Depp probably doesn't need any more of an edge, but still.)

"After spending my early life watching triple features and 48-hour horror movie marathons, I'm finally ready for this," the director said.

The question is, is Cannes? The fest runs May 12-23.
