Steven Spielberg & Rebecca Hall Bring 'The BFG' To Cannes

Rebecca Hall wows in a stunning Dior dress at the premiere of The BFG during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival held at the Palais des Festivals on Saturday (May 14) in Cannes, France.

The 34-year-old actress joined director Steven Spielberg and co-stars Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance, Jemaine Clement, and Penelope Wilton at the premiere and the photo call earlier in the day.

“We just added a little more plot to the movie version of the book, which we did with compliance and cooperation of the entire Dahl estate,” Steven explained ahead of the movie’s event. “They read every draft that we developed. We had a great relationship.”

FYI: Rebecca is wearing Celine at the photo call.

Steven Spielberg's 'The BFG' Will Be His First Disney Movie!

Steven Spielberg will be directing the upcoming movie The BFG and it was just announced that Walt Disney Studios will be releasing the film!

This is the first time that the 68-year-old director will be directing a Disney-branded movie.

“In more than 40 years of making movies, I have been on the producing end of a number of films for The Walt Disney Company, but never as a director,” Steven said in a statement. “It is a special joy to be in the director’s chair as we start The BFG, alongside my long-time friends and film collaborators Kathy Kennedy, who introduced me to this project, Frank Marshall and Melissa Mathison. Together with them and Disney, there are many reasons why I am so excited about this joint venture.”

Mark Rylance will be playing the “Big Friendly Giant” and newcomer Ruby Barnhill will play Sophie. Penelope Wilton will play The Queen and Rebecca Hall was cast as Mary, the Queen’s maid.

Rounding out the cast of the Roald Dahl-movie are Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Michael David Adamthwaite, Daniel Bacon, Chris Gibbs, Adam Godley, Jonathan Holmes, Paul Moniz de Sa and Olafur Olaffson as the giants.
