Marion Cotillard has said in recent interviews that she needs a break and that she had to say no to some very good projects. It seems Iranian director’s Ashgar Farhadi upcoming first French movie is one of them. The Playlist reports via Allocine that Bérénice Bejo replaces Marion Cotillard in the social thriller which starts filming in October and is scheduled for release next spring.
Last Tuesday the Toronto International Film Festival released the full schedule and a guest list. ‘Rust & Bone‘ will screen on the first & second days of the festival:
Thursday, September 6, Visa Screening Room (Elgin), 9:30 PM
Friday, September 7, Ryerson Theatre, 12:00 PM
And Marion Cotillard together with director Jacques Audiard and costar Matthias Schoenaerts are expected to attend as they’re on the released guest list.
If you enjoyed NY Mag’s short summary of Marion’s latest interview you’ll no doubt enjoy Vulture‘s more extensive notes from the full transcript, which I added a while ago:
• Marion Cotillard on Rust and Bone, Playing a Double Amputee, and Hating the Zoo, Vulture, August 21
[edit:] They released some more quotes from the same interview today:
• Plastic Surgery Makes Marion Cotillard Sad, The Cut, August 23
Added a few more stills from ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone).
New York Magazine features a brand new interview with Marion Cotillard to promote ‘Rust & Bone‘ in their Fall Preview:
• Free Marion, New York Magazine, August 19
I added 3 more HQ stills of Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ – currently in cinemas the world over. And there are a few brief glimpses in the movie’s featurette too:
‘Rust and Bone‘ – which premiered during the Cannes Film Festival under its original title ‘De rouille et d’os‘ – will have its North American premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival which takes place September 6-16. The schedule will be announced on August 21.
On the Variety Weblog The Vote Jon Weisman published an interesting review of ‘Rust and Bone‘ comparing it to its Cannes competitor (and winner) Amour.
I also added another outtake from the ‘Rust and Bone‘-themed shoot for Obsession magazine as well as many more movie stills and replaced some existing ones with HQ versions. (Since I changed some of the filenames to change the order you may need to refresh the gallery to see it properly).
