Variety just reported that Marion Cotillard has a new project:
Marion Cotillard is set to topline “Mal de Pierres,” a period romance drama directed by critically-acclaimed auteur Nicole Garcia and produced by Alain Attal’s Les Productions du Tresor, one of France’s top independent film companies.
An adaptation of Milena Agus’ eponymous novel, “Mal de Pierres” (“Mal di pietre”) spans 20 years, following the destiny of a passionate, free-spirited woman who is in a loveless marriage and falls for another man.
A bestseller, the book has been translated in more than 15 languages.
Cotillard will play the leading role, Garcia co-wrote the script with her regular co-scribe, Jacques Fieschi.
“It’s a passion project for both Nicole and us,” Attal told Variety.” It’s a very romantic and intense story about a woman whose quest for absolute love is the essence of life, her ‘raison d’etre.’” Attal added that Cotillard was taken by the script, the strong character it portrays and is highly committed to the project.
“Pierre” will start shooting in Spring 2015.
After Marion Cotillard dropped out of Benoit Jacquot’s ‘Diary of a Chambermaid‘ because she wanted to focus solely on ‘Macbeth‘ without worrying about portraying another character afterwards, I’m very excited that she’s taken on a new Project. Also, it’s a promising role and she’ll be working with a female director – just seems we’ll have to wait a long time to see it happen.
Marion Cotillard and director James Gray will be guests on Charlie Rose tomorrow to talk about ‘The Immigrant‘. The show airs Fridays 8.30pm ET on PBS. Watch a preview clip on their website.
In an exclusive interview with The Huffington Post UK the Metronomy’s founder Joe Mount revealed that he’s been spending some time in the studio during the band’s recent European tour – with Marion Cotillard:
“I’ve been doing lots of things, I swore to myself last time that I wouldn’t ever take my foot off the gas and it’s nice really. I’ve been working with other people and doing my own stuff. I was actually just doing some recording with Marion Cotillard, it’s going very good. ”
Joe is also keen to emphasise that he considers himself a producer now, though he does still plan to release at least two more Metronomy albums.
“I’m sure I’ve got as many albums left in me as anyone wants to release, but I’ve definitely got two really good ones,” he laughed, adding: “There will be more I’m sure, but maybe the quality will dip!”
Hopefully, we’ll be able to hear the result of this collaboration some time soon!

WWD.com reports that Marion Cotillard’s latest campaign with Dior features several new versions of the famous Lady Dior handbag, including one bearing a floral print, and Marion jumping with grace on a trampoline wearing looks from the pre-fall collection by Dior’s couturier Raf Simons. The shots were captures by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino and will debut this Friday in Vogue Brazil and April 2 in Vanity Fair in the U.S. There’s also a short making of clip, see below.
The embodiment of ethereal grace, Marion Cotillard reveals her effortlessly elegant femininity for Jean-Baptiste Mondino’s camera. Liberated in her movements, the star appears to take flight, carried away by the dynamic of a carefree dance. The Lady Dior on her arm is an extension of who she is: timelessly elegant, it’s forever renewing itself in surprising and creative ways. Pop in fuchsia leather, or precious in brown crocodile, it also comes with a floral print in delicate shades of pink with graphic lines.
