He'll make Whatshisname a star! "Cannes Man" (1996) is an irreverent look at what can happen in tinsel town when two rich men make a bet. When legendary producer-director Sy Lerner announces his next project at the Cannes Film Festival, he's bombarded byA-list talent jockeying for roles. But Lerner has made a bet that he can use his prestige and the Hollywood hype machine to turn a complete unknown into a star before the festival is over. This funny satirical look at the film industry features cameos byJohnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro, John Malkovich and many others.
