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).

There’s a new Spring/Summer 2013 Lady Dior Print Ad campaign starring Marion Cotillard ready to be featured in magazines all over the world. Shot again by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino it doesn’t so much focus on a specific location as it’s in addition to showcasing the legendary Lady Dior handbag also featuring looks from the pre-fall Raf Simons collection.
The new spots are slated to break in Numéro magazine in France on Monday and in the May issue of Vanity Fair in the U.S., due out on April 9. It will also be showcased, along with making-of images, on diormag.com.

Screendaily posted on Monday that the upcoming movie by the Dardenne brothers starring Marion Cotillard and Fabrizio Rongione is titled ‘Deux jours, une nuit‘ or ‘Two Days, One Night‘ in English. And here’s the plot synopsis:
Cotillard will play Sandra, who “helped by her husband, has only a weekend to track down her colleagues and convince them to renounce their bonuses so she can keep her job”.
Last night, Marion attended the Paris premiere of ‘Jappeloup’. Here are some pictures:

This was unofficial before, then mentioned briefly at Toronto, but now it seems it is confirmed. Marion will be in the Dardenne brothers next film.
Following their excellent drama The Kid with the Bike brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne are developing their follow-up and we’ve got exclusive details on the project. We recently sat down with Luc Dardenne to discuss the evolution of filmmaking using digital technology, the art of character development, the Oscars and their upcoming, currently untitled film.
The Palm d’Or-winning Belgian filmmaker exclusively revealed that Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard had just signed on to play the lead in project. While no details were given about her character, Dardenne expressed a great deal of enthusiasm for the finished script and for their first-time directing Cotillard. The native francophone went on to say, “We are looking forward to collaborating with Marion. We are all big fans of each others work.”
Luc penned the original script alongside his brother and we’re told that the origins of the script stems from a project which the brothers began many years ago, but only last summer came full circle. Other details of the storyline and characters are being kept tightly under wraps. However, given the history of the roles created by the Dardenne brothers, Cotillard is in good hands. While more of the ensemble will be announced soon, we’ve also got word that Belgian actor Fabrizio Rongione (Rosetta, The Kid With the Bike) will co-star with Cotillard in a supporting role.
The film is produced by Les Films du Fleuve and is set to begin shooting early this summer in the Wallonie region of Belgium. We’ll have more details about the untitled production in our conversation with the filmmaker later this week, but in the meantime one can see Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts in Rust & Bone, which was co-produced by the Dardenne brothers’ production company.
