Marion Cotillard to be honoured by ELLE

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.”

Marion Cotillard to star in Macbeth

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)

Marion to voice character on take of ‘The Little Prince’

James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges Among Voice Stars for ‘Little Prince’

James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti are on board to voice characters in a big-screen take on The Little Prince, the classic French novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

The adaptation is shaping up to have a stacked voice cast, including three recent Oscar winners in Bridges, Cotillard and Del Toro.

Mark Osborne, who directed Kung Fu Panda, is helming the project, which is being produced by Onyx Films’ Aton Soumache — who produced the stylish 2006 animated film Renaissance — and Dimitri Rassam.

The story centers on a pilot who crash-lands in the Sahara desert and comes across a little boy who says he is a prince fallen to Earth from his home on an asteroid. As the pilot repairs his plane, the little prince regales him with stories about his home and the foolish inhabitants of nearby asteroids.

Bridges will voice the pilot. It was not revealed which roles the other actors were taking on.

The book, published Le Petit Prince in 1943 and translated from French into dozens of languages, proved to be a hit due to its philosophical nature, appealing to both adults and children.

Marion being considered for John Wells-directed “Chef”

Cannes: Bradley Cooper Commits To ‘Chef’ As Cease And Desist Goes To Jon Favreau’s Rival Chef Pic

Bradley Cooper has now formally confirmed to star in the John Wells-directed Chef, making this one of the early projects stirring action from foreign buyers who can now visualize the Silver Linings Playbook star back in meltdown mode in this Shampoo-like drama. He plays a Paris chef named Adam Jones, who destroys his wunderkind status in a blaze of decadence and out of control behavior. He cleans up and returns to Paris sober, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars. This has been in the works a bit, and recently Cooper saw Wells’ upcoming TWC Oscar-bait movie August: Osage County and then TWC set Wells to direct Chef. They are now looking to round out that cast, and I’m hearing Michelle Williams and Marion Cotillard as potential female leads, and Omar Sy for co-starring role. The film’s produced by Stacey Sher, Erwin Stoff and Michael Shamberg.

'The Immigrant' & 'Blood Ties' Premiering at Cannes

When the line-up for this year’s Cannes Film Festival was unveiled a while ago, Marion Cotillard’s two upcoming movies were both on it!

The Immigrant‘ by James Gray – formerly ‘Lowlife‘ or ‘Nightingale‘ – is part of the Official Selection and ‘Blood Ties‘ by Guillaume Canet (and co-written by James Gray) will be shown Out of Competition.

I added new HQ stills for both movies (‘The Immigrant‘ stills are replacing existing low quality stills).
