CANNES, France, April 12 (UPI) --
France's 66th Festival de Cannes is to close with a screening of "Zulu," a thriller starring Forest Whitaker
and Orlando Bloom
shot in South Africa.
The film was directed by Jerome Salle and adapted from the novel of the same name by Caryl Ferey.
Set in contemporary Cape Town, the film is about two police officers "caught up in a suspenseful search [that] combines elements of political film noir and social study," a synopsis said.
The renowned film festival is to open May 15 with a showing of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby."
