As previously announced Iranian director Asghar Farhadi and producer Alexandre Mallet-Guy were awarded Media prize of the European Union earlier today for their upcoming project. I haven’t been able to find an extensive report about it but here are bits and pieces I found:
“I’m very pleased that Marion Cotillard has joined us in this amazing adventure,” Mallet-Guy said in an exclusive announcement with French film trade Le FilmFrançais. Details of the storyline are under wraps while Farhadi finalises the script. Mallet-Guy revealed, however, that the film will be an emotional social thriller in the vein of A Separation, with multiple twists aimed at keeping the audience in suspense from the first frame to the last. (ScreenDaily).
Tahar Rahim is confirmed as co-star and an Iranian actor, whose deal is still being finalized, will also join the cast (Variety).
It will be filmed next fall in Paris and the suburbs. The release is planned for Spring 2013 (Le Figaro).
Farhadi didn’t provide any more details. He said that “when asked about a film that has already been made I haven’t much to say. But I now realize it’s even harder to talk about a film that hasn’t even been made yet.” (Yahoo).
“Marion Cotillard accepted the part in my next film at our first meeting. My script will be finalized the day before shooting starts. Afterwards not a line will be changed” (EcranNoir 1, 2).
“She is one of the few actresses who can express complex emotions” (Focus.de).
Of course Marion Cotillard also attended the press conference for ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) ahead of its premiere last Thursday. Also present were co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, director Jacques Audiard and co-writer Thomas Bidegain. It’s really an interesting watch (again, with simultaneous translation into English) on the official Festival website. Or watch the edited version above to only see Marion’s bits.
