Seydoux, who picked up the Palme d'Or top prize in Cannes last May along with her director and co-star for the lesbian love story "Blue is the Warmest Color", takes the lead with Vincent Cassel in a Franco-German co-production retelling the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast".
Festival organizers announced three Chinese entries including "Black Coal, Thin Ice" by Diao Yinan about a cop investigating serial murders who learns all the victims are linked to the same woman.
Scandinavian production "In Order of Disappearance" starring Stellan Skarsgard and Bruno Ganz showing a drug war between the Norwegian mafia and Serbian gangsters will also premiere at the event.

Organizers had previously announced that Clooney would present his Nazi-era art thriller "The Monuments Men", while Anderson will unveil his all-star romp "The Grand Budapest Hotel" on opening night, February 6.
