‘Public Enemies’ status

Public Enemies – starring none other than Johnny Depp and currently filming in the US mid west – continues to attract great acting talents. Apparently, Billy Crudup – who played Marion’s husband in Big Fish – joined the cast to play former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.

Back when the set was in Columbus this blog used to be a great source of news & updates reporting straight from where it was all happening and the blog continues to bring us all the latest info on what’s happening on the film’s set. Check out other links provided by JV in the comments section of a previous post here on this site. There was no mention of Marion Cotillard apart from an IMDB user reporting she did some interior scenes in a mansion with Johnny on the Thursday before the Easter weekend and claiming she didn’t come out the greet the crowds because she was cold from having been scantily dressed all day during shooting. Also a French gossip site reported that Marion then was able to take a few days off (probably over the Easter weekend) to come home to Paris, where she was spotted at a concert.

There are many comments about the making of the film, about Johnny Depp and also about the story behind the film – the true story of Dillinger – but finding information about Marion’s current involvement proves to be a bit more difficult. So if you come across any additional information don’t hesitate to comment here on the site to let us all know about it!

  1. Yeah, I’ve noticed that there is scant news about Marion’s involvement in the film. I’m kinda okay with this, so that I’ll be more interested in seeing the film when it premieres instead of being overfed with behind the scenes before the film actually comes out. Well anywayz, that’s my take on things.

    Hahaha – I’m sure everyone’s seen the April Fool’s joke that was played out on the internet regarding Mme Cotillard’s involvement in the film – I was so not gullible!

  2. Ohh! Michael Mann, Johnny Depp and Marion Cotillard. This has to be good. Sounds like a fairly small role for Marion, but heck, if I were an actress I would personally leap at any opportunity, however small, to work with Depp.

  3. Well, Billie Frechette helped him out behind the scenes, making purchases, smuggling maps, etc. She would hide out with him when he was on the run, and one time she even drove his getaway car! They were very, very close, and when she was arrested he continued to try and help her get out of prison (through any means necessary, even breaking her out) even though she told him that it would get him killed. It’s not a huge role, but it’s an interesting one. I mean, she was there with him at the beginning.

    Honestly, though, I’m eager to find out who will be playing the Lady in Red.

  4. It looks like the same kind of role she had in A Very Long Engagement.
    Would be great, she was amazing in that movie. Perfect for her. Not a big role, but a very intense one !

  5. After I saw La Vie en Rose I now feel as though I have a new favorite actress. I have never heard of Marion Cotillard until the night of the Oscars. Then I instantly knew of what a brilliant actress she is, Wow. What a super great performance. I am now collecting every film with Marion Cotillard in it. I did not like A Very long Engagement. It was too violent and Cotillard’s role was very small with a tragic end to her character. In 1975 I saw Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage and Liv Ullman became my favorite actress and the late, great Ingmar Bergman was and is still my all time favorite film director. In 1968 I saw Bonnie and Clyde and Faye Dunaway became my new favorite actress. So now in 2008 I am so glad that I can still be emotionally affected by a great performance. Cotillard is beautiful.. She reincarnated the life of Edith Piaf. I am a fan for life.
