Robert De Niro to head the Cannes Film Festival jury

Along with receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award at next week’s Golden Globes ceremony, Robert De Niro has another honor to add to his belt— president.  The veteran actor has just been named the president of the jury for the 64th Cannes Film Festival.  De Niro had the following to say about the honor:

“The Cannes Film Festival is a rare opportunity for me, as it is one of the oldest and one of the best in the world,” De Niro said in a statement. “Having served as president of the jury in the 80s twice, I know this isn’t an easy task for me or my fellow jury members, but I’m very honored and happy to head the jury for this year’s … Festival.”

The Cannes Film Festival will take place May 11- 22, 2011.
