Some vampires are coming to Cannes.

Organizers of the world's most prestigious film festival have announced that “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Jim Jarmusch’s vampire movie starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, has been added to the competition lineup.

The movie centers on a centuries-old vampire couple whose life is complicated by the male vampire’s bleak worldview as well as the female’s loose-canon sister (Mia Wasikowska).

Swinton has been a frequent presence at Cannes in recent years, appearing last year with “Moonrise Kingdom” and in 2011 with “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” For the normally prolific Jarmusch, it marks only the indie director’s second film in eight years, after “The Limits of Control” in 2009.

The festival also announced that it had added a trio of Un Certain Regard titles as well as an out-of-competition premiere for "Le Dernier Des Injustes," a Holocaust documentary form “Shoah” auteur Claude Lanzmann.

The Cannes Film Festival kicks off May 15 with a screening of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby."
