The cast of 'The Only Way is Essex' including Joey Essex and Chloe Sims are set to party at the Cannes Film Festival next month
The cast of 'The Only Way is Essex' are going to the Cannes Film Festival.
Stars of the show - which features the likes of Joey Essex, Chloe Sims and Jessica Wright - will be going to the annual French event in May with producers of the ITV2 series to see if they can drum up interest for a possible film.
A source told the Daily Mirror: "Execs want to make 'TOWIE: The Movie', so they're heading out to Cannes to network and try to make a deal.
"They're taking some of the key cast members out there to introduce them around - it's great publicity for the show, and of course, for them individually too. They know they're going to be small fish in a very big pond out there, but they'll be rubbing shoulders with Hollywood's finest so they're all very excited."
The group are also expected to enjoy some parties while they are there, and are hoping to make a lasting "impression".
The source added to the Daily Mirror: "The guys are ready to use their partying skills and the girls are ready to flash some flesh. They're hoping to make an impression on Cannes."
