American filmmaker Tim Burton will head the jury at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

The "Edward Scissorhands" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" director says heading up the nine-member jury in May is a "great honor."

Organizers of the French Riviera festival made the announcement Tuesday in a statement quoting Burton's reaction.

Burton says: "After spending my early life watching triple features and 48-hour horror movie marathons, I'm finally ready for this."

The 63rd Cannes festival will be held May 12 to 23. The rest of the jury will be announced later.
