‘Macbeth’ started filming

‘Macbeth’ started filming

Studiocanal and Film4 announced yesterday the start of principal photography on See-Saw Films’ production of ‘Macbeth‘. The film will shoot for seven weeks in Scotland and England.

We learn that in addition to Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender the film also stars Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki. Director of photography is Adam Arkapaw (Animal Kingdom, Snowtown), production designer is Fiona Crombie (Snowtown, Top Of The Lake). Costumes are designed by Academy-Award winner Jacqueline Durran (Atonement, Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy), make-up and hair designer is Academy-Award winner Jenny Shircore (The Invisible Woman, My Life With Marilyn). The screenplay was written by Jacob Koskoff and Todd Louiso.

Studiocanal will distribute Macbeth in the UK, France & Germany and is handling International Sales. The Weinstein Company will distribute in the US. Macbeth is a See-Saw Films production in association with DMC Film, Anton Capital Entertainment S.C.A. and Creative Scotland.

And this is the official synopsis:

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn 11th Century Scotland.

Scotsman reports that filming will take place in several spectacular locations in the north of the Isle of Skye in Scotland as well as in Hankley Common in Surrey, Cambridge and Oxford in England. Arts agency Creative Scotland supports the movie with £200,000. It’s chief executive Janet Archer said:

We are delighted to support Justin Kurzel’s film, working in partnership with See-Saw, Film4, StudioCanal and the entire film-making team to produce this adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard – arguably two of the more most inspiring and daring actors of our time. The Scottish film industry works hard to promote Scotland’s world-class talent, film locations, facilities and services. We encourage the international film industry to come and film in Scotland and it’s great to see productions of this stature making use of everything we have to offer.

According to The Foraging Photographer they’ve been building a film set at Hankley over the past couple of weeks. On exactly the site of Skyfall Lodge they are creating a medieval village with a little church. The Surrey heathland is standing in for Scotland again, and the filmmakers have been working hard to create that authentic foggy look with their smoke machines. There’s also a short video of them filming crowd fight scenes. Apparently, there was lots of smoke, shouting and the clash of swords. Very atmospheric with the sun occasionally sending shafts of light through the hazy fog of smoke. Visit The Foraging Photographer to check out some photos and the video.

UK tabloid Express reports a source as saying: “Marion worked with a voice coach to learn the [Scottish] accent but it drove her crazy and she feared she would ruin the film. The idea of Lady Macbeth speaking with a French accent is entirely legitimate, taking into account the French-Scottish alliance of that time.”

‘Sorties prevues’ – Screencaptures & Video

As previously announced Marion Cotillard was the guest when Laurent Weil presented Trailers for upcoming movies on December 28, 2013. As it turned out the interview was conducted during the Marrakech Film Festival just after Marion Cotillard had presented ‘Public Enemies‘ on Jemaa El Fna square, an experience she’s always dreamed about ever since hearing other people talk about it when she came to the festival before.

Then she talked about ‘Terre des ours‘, she loves documentaries and was at first hesitant to accept being the voice because she usually prefers the visuals in documentaries to speak for themselves. But she really loves how ‘Terre des ours‘ shows a place of this world where nobody goes and these sublime animals that are adversely affected by humans. So if this movie moves just one person to learn more or to help preserve this world she’s happy. Laurent Weil joked that this would be the first movie her son could watch, Marion laughed but said that she sometimes thinks of how Johnny Depp’s career changed when he had kids and she sometimes would like to make a movie just for kids.

After a couple of trailers Marion Cotillard talked about her experience of shooting ‘Deux jours, une nuit‘ (Two Days, One Night) with the Dardenne brothers. The movie is similar to their previous films in tone and genre and it was one of Marion’s greatest experiences as an actress. Their movies have some of the strongest moments she has ever seen in films and so she wanted to ask them about everything. She would have done anything for them. But even though she loves working with great cineasts she wouldn’t say this is an important criteria since it’s just amazing to have the opportunity to go from one cinematic universe to another.

After some more trailers they talked about the upcoming ‘Macbeth‘, for which she was in full preparation even though having taken out time to be part of the jury at the Marrakech Film Festival. She repeated that she had always believed to be one day portraying Lady M after playing her at drama school, however she thought it would take place on stage and in French.

Later, Laurent Weil asked her about the lack of comedies on her CV. She said she loves comedies but doesn’t think she has achieved the level of authenticity necessary for comedies yet or that the little bit of comedy she’s done is any good. (Interestingly, they don’t mention her cameo appearance in ‘Anchorman 2‘ even though later on the trailer was shown. People have praised her cameo by the way.)

Marion Cotillard promotes ‘Land of the Bears’ on Disney Channel

Marion Cotillard promotes ‘Land of the Bears’ on Disney Channel

I don’t think we already hava a news announcement about this but Marion Cotillard is narrating ‘Terre des ours‘ (Land of the Bears), the first documentary to be presented in cinemas in 3D. It’s being released in France on February 26. Visit the official Homepage for more Information and to view some pictures.

Set in the wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula, the land of legends and the kingdom of wild brown bears, we follow the daily adventures of five wild brown bears. A mother bear and her two young ones, an adolescent male and an experienced male leader. Each of them have their own concerns and preoccupations. The mother must feed and protect her cubs, whilst all they want is to explore the big wide world out there, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead of them. The adolescent is coming of age and must find his place in the adult world, whereas the experienced male must constantly defend his supremacy and impose his strength.

Marion Cotillard answered some questions posted on Disney Channel.fr during their program Spot Mag last Wednesday.

What is your favourite animal and why?
Oh, this is difficult because I love lots of animals. So to start, I love elephants. Because I watched many documentaries about elephants and because their ability to show emotion really moves me. They cry and really display emotion in a way that we humans can see.

I want to become an actress. Do you have an advice?
I recommend to take your time, to work, to experiment, I don’t know how old you are but to live your life and to live all the experiences that nourish the actress you will be.

What was your biggest adventure when you were a child?
I was born in Paris, I lived in a city in the suburbs. So when I moved to the countryside with my parents it was really a very big adventure. I moved from the 18th floor of a block of flats to a country house that had a huge garden with a river at the end. This has really enriched my life. It’s true that my life in the city has done that as well, but it really was a shock and a big adventure.

How does it feel to be famous?
It’s quite a peculiar thing, maybe I will never fully get used to it. Additionally, celebrity today sometimes comes from nowhere, from nothing. Someone can be famous for being on television etc. This is dangerous. But my celebrity also comes from the fact that people have seen a part of my life when I was telling a story. So my celebrity allows me to continue to tell stories. Anyway, I can’t complain.

Bonus questions

What was your dream job while growing up?
I wanted to be so many things that I decided acting was the best way to experience many different jobs.

What are your passions?
I love music, I can’t imagine my life without music. It’s my dream to be able to play an instrument very well. This is something I can’t at the Moment and it’s frustrating. I also love forests and nature. It’s one of the reasons I agreed to be the voice of ‘Land of the bears‘.

What made you want to be in cinema?
I come from a family of actors and storytelling and acting has always been part of my life. What made me want to be in cinema is because I really admire this art form and I used to watch a lot of films by Charlie Chaplin or the Marx Brothers. So all of this made me want to be in cinema.
