The Cannes Film Festival 2014 is fast approaching, and an exciting name has been added to the soon-to-be released jury list

The jury is slowly being announced for next month's Cannes Film Festival, and word has it that Sofia Coppola, whose film The Bling Ring made its debut at the event held on the French Riviera last year, will be serving on its jury this year - presided by The Piano director Jane Campion.

The festival will unveil the complete slate of jurors in the coming days, and the news comes in light of director's recent announcement that she is working on a remake of Disney's classic, The Little Mermaid and guest-edited an issue of W magazine.

Coppola has also appeared in ad campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, and designed accessories for the latter. She interned at Chanel at the age of 15, and also briefly had her own clothing line, called Milkfed.
