Cannes Film Festival director Gilles Jacob has finally completed his choice of in-competition pix for this year. British director Peter Greenaway’s just-finished “Prospero’s Book,” starring John Gielgud, joins the 18 films announced last week.

Jacob has wrapped the competition list with Werner Schroeter’s “Malina” starring Isabelle Huppert. The fest director confirmed reports that Yank director David Mamet’s in-competition offering “Homicide” will open the festival.

Meanwhile, sidebar event Un Certain Regard has added “La Mujer Del Puerto.” Pic from Mexican director Arturo Ripstein brings Latin American participation in the official lineup to two films; Maria Novaro’s “Danzon” appears in the Director’s Fortnight.
