Sony Pictures Classics will release one of the documentaries screening at Cannes...

...and it's the latest from the director of the documentary 'No End in Sight'. Here's the story from The Hollywood Reporter:

Sony Pictures Classics will release Charles Ferguson's latest documentary "Inside Job," a look at the global financial crisis, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in an out-of-competition special screening slot.

Matt Damon narrates the film, which was produced through their Representational Pictures Co. by Ferguson and Audry Mars, who also both produced Ferguson's 2007 Iraq War study "No End in Sight," which was nominated for an Academy Award. Christina Weiss Lurie served as exec producer.

SPC became involved in the film more than a year and a half ago, the company revealed Sunday. SPC will also be represented at Cannes by Stephen Frears' "Tamara Drewe" and Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger."

-It looks to be a good festival for the studio...thoughts?
