Variety reports that Marion Cotillard is in talks to join Robert Zemeckis’ next projet, a spy thriller set during the Second World War. The plot of the film is being kept under wraps but sources say Marion and Brad would most likely play two assassins who are married. When Marion’s character is revealed to be a supporter of the Third Reich, she becomes her husband’s next target.
Robert Zemeckis is aboard to direct the period film, which will reportedly find Pitt and Cotillard as assassins who fall in love while working a mission to take out a German official. They end up getting hitched, but a spanner is thrown in their happiness when Pitt learns that his missus is actually a double agent for the Nazis and his next job will be to kill her.
The film would shoot early next year, once Marion wraps work on Assassin’s Creed.
If this project gets signed, Marion will have four movies lined up shooting into 2016. Seems like it’ll be a busy year!
