New project: 'Low Life'

Exciting news! just reported that Marion Cotillard together with Joaquin Phoenix and possibly Jeremy Renner will star in writer/director James Gray’s next movie called ‘Low Life‘. With all the actors currently being busy shooting is scheduled to begin next year. What is it about?

Marion Cotillard will play a woman attempting to immigrate from Poland. Her American dream turns into a nightmare. While sailing to Ellis Island and a new start, her sister grows deathly ill and she is forced to trade sexual favors for medicine and food to keep her sister alive. Once they land, she is warned to keep quiet about what happened. Though she does, she walks away with immigration papers that deem her a woman with bad morals. With no place to go, she falls prey to a charming sleazebag (Phoenix), who persuades her to turn tricks in New York. Renner is close to signing on to play the sleazebag’s cousin, a magician who sweeps the young woman off her feet and is her best chance to escape the nightmarish life she has fallen into.

  1. Sounds like her first starring role in the U.S.

    The Dark Knight RIses will give her enough name recognition to make this film (with its two other acclaimed actors) have a lot of Oscar potential and hype.

  2. holy cow, this is AMAZING! as brett said, it sounds like marion’s first STARRING role. it’s about time! i am extremely excited about this new development; the film and role certainly has some oscar potential for marion, though one never really knows (especially this early on).

  3. As other comments say; this may be the first leading role for marion. I don’t know if this sounds for prices, but it could be!!
    Really happy!^^

  4. It sounds AMAZING! I was waiting for this, even tough this synopsis doesn’t really attract my attention at first sight. But, if Marion is involved in the project, i’m sure it would be a good film. I trust in her choices.

  5. I agree with most posters on this new project for Marion. I am certainly very pleased that she’ll be leading actor/actress in an American film. I have to commend both Marion and her PR team for picky worthy roles.

  6. Second time she would play a Polish immigrant after the Sophie Kowalsky role (2nd generation then) in Love me if you dare!
