Venice announces jury lineup (Variety)

ROME -- The Venice Film Festival has announced the complete roster for its main jury.

Joining Ang Lee, previously announced as jury prexy, will be U.S. helmer Joe Dante; Gallic thesp Sandrine Bonnaire; Italian helmer Liliana Cavani; Indian scribe-helmer Anurag Kashyap; and Italian rock star and helmer Luciano Ligabue.

Most fest jurors are longtime Lido aficionados.

Lee is a two-time Venice Golden Lion winner, in 2005 for "Brokeback Mountain," and in 2007 for "Lust, Caution."

Bonnaire won the Venice Coppa Volpi thesping prize in 1995 for her role in Claude Chabrol's "A Judgement in Stone" (La Ceremonie). Bonnaire tied for that nod with Isabelle Huppert, her co-protag in that pic.

Dante's "The Second Civil War" unspooled at the Lido in 1997.

Cavani scooped a Venice Lion in 1965 for her docu "Primo piano: Philippe Petain, processo a Vichy," and was most recently at the Lido with "Ripley's Game" in 2002.

Ligabue's first feature "Radiofreccia" bowed in Venice in 1998.

The only Venetian newcomer on the jury panel is Kashyap, a big name in Bollywood whose feature films include "Black Friday" and "Dev. D," and who collaborated with Danny Boyle on "Slumdog Millionaire."

The 66th edition of Venice will run Sept. 2-12. The lineup will be announced Wednesday.
