PARIS — Thesps Burt Reynolds and Julianne Moore will receive tributes at the 27th Deauville Festival of American Cinema, on a roster with previously announced honoree producer Joel Silver.

Competition pics have not been announced for the Aug. 31-Sept. 9 event, but the world premiere of Bart Freundlich’s “World Traveler” starring Moore and Billy Crudup is slated out of competition, as is Reynolds’ “Tempted,” directed by Bill Bennett and co-starring Saffron Burrows.

The jury, headed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, includes actors Sandrine Bonnaire, Marion Cotillard, Arielle Dombasle, Gerard Darmon, Pascal Greggory and Benoit Poelvoorde; composer Gabriel Yared, writer-director Jean-Pierre Jeunet; and cinematographer Darius Khondji.

In addition to a Stanley Kubrick retrospective and a sidebar programmed by Oliver Stone, the fest will honor James Dean’s memory with screenings of the three features in his short filmography, capped by Mark Rydell’s new biopic “James Dean” starring James Franco.
