Great news. Marion’s new film seems confirmed to begin shooting in a week. Thanks to Variety, we now have a bit more details on the plot and production of the film.
Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard is set to star in “Gueule d’ange,” a French drama which will mark the feature debut of Vanessa Filho.
“Gueule d’ange” was written by Filho, in collaboration with Alain Dias, aka Diasteme, a writer-director whose 2015 thriller “French Blood” played at Toronto, and François Pirot (“Mobile Home”).
The drama follows a single mother who abandons her 8-year-old daughter after meeting someone in a nightclub. Cotillard will star in the film opposite Ayline Etaix, Alban Lenoir and Amélie Daure.
The movie is being produced by Carole Lambert through her new company Windy Production and the well-established producer Marc Missonnier via his banner Moana Films. Stephane Celerier’s Mars Films is co-producing and will distribute it in France.
“Gueule d’ange” will start shooting Oct. 9 for eight weeks in the South of France and Paris region.
