Rumour: Role in Jacques Audiard’s next movie? (Update)
Back in June we posted about how there was a rumour that Marion might be in Jacques Audiard’s next movie ’Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (English title: Rust and Bone). The rumour was again raised earlier in the week, this time via a mention on UniFrance’s Facebook page.
We’ll have to wait and see if it gets confirmed, but until then some more information has popped up about the movie.

Marion Cotillard is coming to town.
She is going to be in my area/town October 3rd and this for 10 weeks. She will be shooting the new Jacques Audiard’s movie called “Un goût de rouille et d’os”. (A taste of rust and bones).
Multiple casting sites are looking for a woman between 18-40 who is thin, bilateral femoral or tibial amputee to cover for the main actress (the role that Marion is rumoured to be playing in the movie).
Meanwhile, Alexandre Desplat will be composing the music for the movie.
According to the casting notices the movie will start filming as early as September.

‘Contagion’ to premiere at Venice Film Festival
It was announced today that ’Contagion‘ will have its world premiere at Venice Film Festival in August/September, ahead of its opening in North America on September 9.
‘Contagion’: New Release Date & Poster
Good news, the release date of Marion’s upcoming movie ‘Contagion‘ has been moved ahead 6 weeks. Instead of on October 21 it will now be released in the US on September 9, 2011 (source). Hopefully, also the release dates in other countries will be moved ahead.
TheFilmStage.com has a bad quality picture of the ‘Contagion‘ poster. Isn’t it amazing how many Academy Award winners & nominees are involved in this?
Marion Cotillard Is Part of a (R)evolution
Pierre Rabhi and his ecology movement Les colibris announced last Sunday that they’re fillming a documentary with Marion Cotillard called ‘une (R)évolution‘ which will be released in cinemas in the first half of 2012 together with an accompanying book so that the public gives their all for the (environmental) campaign. The movie tells the story of a profound change in society that has started taking place in 2000. It will show what our world might look like as well as examples of pioneers small and large.
To put together this documentary they’re asking the public to help them with a guide of 35 actions for our environment that everyone can take right where they live. They will be holding 22 forums in regions across France to engage the public. Become a colibri to support the movement and to know more.
Rumour: Role in Jacques Audiard’s next movie?
This is still only just a rumour but it has been mentioned online (Enculture, Twitter) that Marion Cotillard will be starring in Jacques Audiard’s next movie. He’s best known for directing and co-writing the Oscar nominated ‘A Prophet‘. So, what is his next movie? It’s ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ and is an adaptation of the book by Craig Davidson with the same title (English title: Rust and Bone) and tells the story of 8 people. Filming for the movie is currently scheduled to take place September to November 2011.
Parallel stories of marginal characters, experiencing their inner demons and their obsessions: a young boxer fighting in illegal fights, an authoritarian father making of his son a great basketball player, an advertising executive being an enthusiast of pit bull fights and a magician disappearing one day from the stage …
Can’t wait for a confirmation of Marion’s part in this!
Congratulations! Welcome Marcel

Marion speaks about ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
Marion Cotillard recently spoke to 24 Frames – the Movies section on the LA Times Website – and they asked her about her role in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ and why she joined the project. Could her character Miranda Tate be a cover for a more intriguing character as fans are speculating?
“My role is a secret, as is the whole project.” Cotillard did offer some thoughts on why she joined the film — namely, a chance to reunite with Nolan. And she said she has a specific regard for Batman among pretty much all the superheroes out there.
Just what is it about Batman that makes him so appealing to the actress? It’s that brooding thing. “I think it’s that he’s human,” Cotillard said. “He can’t really fly, and he doesn’t have superpowers. And he has that darkness inside.”
It sounds like this was part of an interview conducted for ‘Midnight in Paris‘ so I can’t wait for the whole interview.
