HBO Films hosted a refined dinner on the terrace of the Majestic Hotel Tuesday night, where the cabler’s execs mingled with the stars of HBO’s “Live From Baghdad,” Michael Keaton and Lili Taylor.
Also on hand were helmer Mick Jackson and producer Sara Colleton. The cast and filmmakers had flown into Cannes from Morocco, where they were shooting the adaptation of CNN correspondent Robert Wiener’s “Live From Baghdad: Gathering News at Ground Zero.”
However, the real guest of honor was the HBO’s production slate, overseen by HBO Films prexy Colin Callender, in which the cabler feels confident enough to rep to international buyers.
Other stars in attendance included actors Nick Moran, David Suchet, Elias Koteas and scribe Richard Loncraine.
