This is still only just a rumour but it has been mentioned online (Enculture, Twitter) that Marion Cotillard will be starring in Jacques Audiard’s next movie. He’s best known for directing and co-writing the Oscar nominated ‘A Prophet‘. So, what is his next movie? It’s ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ and is an adaptation of the book by Craig Davidson with the same title (English title: Rust and Bone) and tells the story of 8 people. Filming for the movie is currently scheduled to take place September to November 2011.
Parallel stories of marginal characters, experiencing their inner demons and their obsessions: a young boxer fighting in illegal fights, an authoritarian father making of his son a great basketball player, an advertising executive being an enthusiast of pit bull fights and a magician disappearing one day from the stage …
Can’t wait for a confirmation of Marion’s part in this!
Exciting news! Deadline.com 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.
Remember ‘Little White Lies‘? After very successful screenings during the French Film Festival editions throughout Australia earlier this year the movie is getting its proper theatrical release down under on June 16. Win tickets for sneak previews held June 10-12 here. Visit Hopscotch Films for some clips from the movie with English subtitles.
I added new original promotional artwork for the movie from Australia and Turkey (it was released mid-May) as well as the one for Germany (out on July 7) which looks similar to the Spanish version. This is the place-holder for the German movie website and this is the newly released German trailer (you’ll have to skip to the 1:03 min mark for the actual trailer).

If you haven’t yet seen ‘Midnight in Paris‘ even though it is playing in a cinema near you be sure to go see it soon! I myself went to see it a few weeks ago and was thoroughly charmed and entertained by this enchanting and funny comedy.
The movie’s release date for Germany has been changed, it’ll be in theatres on August 18, 2011 – one week earlier than previously annouced. Here’s the German Trailer and the German Website. Hopscotch Films aquired the rights to distribute ‘Midnight in Paris‘ in Australia. No date has been set yet but it will be later this year (source).
Here are 2 clips – in Spanish – both from Marion Cotillard’s first moment as Adriana in the movie. Sadly, I haven’t been able to find them with the original audio. Clip 1 – First Impression • Clip 2 – Belle Epoque
