USA Today reported last week that Marion Cotillard will be among the women to be honoured at ELLE’s 20th Women in Hollywood event on October 21 at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills. Congratulations!
Fellow honorees will be Penélope Cruz, Reese Witherspoon, Naomie Harris, Melissa McCarthy and Nancy Meyers. Shailene Woodley will receive the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award, and Eva Marie Saint will get the L’Oréal Paris Legend Award.
“This is a special moment for Elle as we mark 20 wonderful years of Women in Hollywood,” says Elle editor-in-chief Robbie Myers in a statement. “The longevity of this annual celebratory event is a testament to the remarkable women we honor who have been setting an example in the entertainment industry with their brilliant work. We’re proud to continue championing these illustrious women in the years to come.”
According to See-Saw Films, Marion Cotillard has replaced Natalie Portman as Lady Macbeth opposite Michael Fassbender in a new adapation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The film, directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), is set to be produced by the team that brought us The King’s Speech and Shame. Shooting is set to begin January 2014 in the United Kingdom. Studio Canal and Film4 are financing the project. This is amazing news, can’t wait to see Marion doing Shakespeare!
“I feel extremely blessed that Marion is joining our film. She is one of the bravest and most compelling actors I have watched in recent years and I cannot wait to collaborate with both her and Michael in bringing to screen this very human and tragic love story.”
– Justin Kurzel (director)
“Marion Cotillard has proven extraordinary versatility through her stunning performances in La Vie en Rose and Rust and Bone. Casting her as Lady Macbeth alongside Michael Fassbender will bring a fresh and exciting dynamic to the story of lovers pulled apart by war and ambition.”
– Iain Canning (producer)
