The 2019 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced this morning by president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Frémaux, and one major title missing from Competition was “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Many expected to hear Quentin Tarantino’s name announced during the lineup announcement, but alas the filmmaker is not yet confirmed to join Terrence Malick, Ken Loach, Bong Joon-ho, and more in the official Palme d’Or race.

While Tarantino fans might be disappointed the director is not confirmed for Cannes yet, there is still hope the filmmaker could break into the lineup before the end of April. Only 90% of the official Cannes 2019 selection was announced today, which means additions will be announced prior to Cannes kicking off May 14. Frémaux told press he is hopeful Tarantino will return to Cannes this year and explained why “Hollywood” could not be announced during the initial presentation.
