It's official. The world will get its first look at "Foxcatcher" at the Cannes Film Festival May 14-25, organizers confirmed Thursday.

Bennett Miller directs the movie about the real-life DuPont chemical fortune heir who went to prison for killing an Olympic gold medalist and wrestler. It stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall.

Wilpen Hall in Sewickley Heights was the stand-in for Foxcatcher Farms during 2012 filming in Western Pennsylvania.

In January 1996, John du Pont shot and killed David Schultz, a 1984 gold medal winner who had come to live and train at the state-of-the-art Foxcatcher National Training Center that du Pont had built on his 800-acre property in Newtown Square, Pa.
