Park Chan-wook's Film Up for Competition at Cannes

Award-winning filmmaker Park Chan-wook's latest film has been invited to the official competition section at this year's Cannes Film Festival to be held in May.

The festival's organizing committee Thursday unveiled the lineup of films to be shown, including Park's "The Handmaiden".

"The Wailing", directed by Na Hong-jin, and "Train to Busan" by Yeon Sang-ho were invited to screen out of competition. Na has been to Cannes twice before with "The Chaser" in 2008 and "The Yellow Sea" in 2011.

Based on British author Sarah Waters' novel "Fingersmith", Park's adaptation is set in Korea and Japan in the 1930s. The story revolves around an heiress who falls in love with a petty thief.

Park won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2004 for "Oldboy" and collected the Jury Prize for "Thirst" in 2009.

U.S. director Woody Allen's "Café Society" will open the festival, which will run from May 11-22.
