The new campaign of ‘Miss Dior’ has hit and this time it is Hollywood as the location.
L.A. WOMAN: Marion Cotillard continues to rack up the air miles in her role as a Christian Dior spokesmodel. The Oscar-winning actress — who has already been pictured in Paris, New York, Shanghai and London for the French brand — traveled to Los Angeles recently to pose for photographer Steven Klein at a groovy house by architect John Lautner. She is seen clutching a Lady Dior bag in multicolored crocodile, with a swimming pool and the Hollywood hills in the background. Giovanna Battaglia styled the ad, with Julien d’Ys on hair and Christophe Danchaud doing makeup. The campaign is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Nov. 14 and the Financial Times on Nov. 19. French weeklies and December monthlies are to follow.

Screendaily has posted an article on this month’s American Film Market (AFM). One film which will be shopped around is Guillaume Canet’s US Remake of ‘Les Liens Du Sang’ now being called ‘Blood Ties’ (in which James Gray helped with the script).
The article states that Marion may be potentially starring in the project.
Sales company Wild Bunch are close to coming on to rep Canet’s project, and it’s said that Mark Wahlberg (who worked with Gray on both “The Yards” and “We Own The Night”) is circling the role of one of the brothers, with Cotillard and “Avatar” lead Zoe Saldana also linked to the film.
It also confirms that James Gray is planning to start filming ‘Low Life’ in January.
NiceMatin.com reports that filming for Jacques Audiard’s new movie ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust and Bone) starring Marion Cotillard started yesterday in Antibes. Marion herself wasn’t on the set but she arrived on the Côte d’Azur on Monday and spent Tuesday afternoon at the Antibes Marineland in rehearsals to be able to portray an orca trainer. She will return in November to film her scenes.
Ali is actually called Alain. Alain van Versch. He is 25 years old and lives in the North. He has no money and has never had any. When you’re young and alone, money is not a problem. It becomes one when the girl with whom you have had a child places it in your hands. Now, obviously, Ali has a problem: his name is Sam, and he’s five years old.
Running on and running out of ideas Ali calls his sister who lives in Antibes in the south. This is where the father and the child who don’t know each other will find shelter for the winter, in the basement of a house.
Ali agrees with the song: misery is less painful in the sun. He does odd jobs: night watchman, bouncer … And it is in a nightclub, le Fever, that he meets Stéphanie. She is 28 years old, she is blonde, she’s beautiful. It is a princess with an incredible occupation: orca trainer at the Aquatic Park in Antibes.
Ali accompanies her home and leaves her his number, but nothing is possible between them. A princess does not go out with a guy like Ali.
It takes the orca presentation show to turn into drama and Stéphanie to lose both her legs before a phone call in the middle of the night connects them again.
When Ali finds Stéphanie, packed in a wheelchair, alone in her new special needs apartment, he understands what a princess is who has lost her legs. A Princess fallen from above.
Between them will grow a relationship that is special, carnal and codified. And when Ali participates in illegal fights to save her life, she will become his manager.
037 Un goût de rouille et d’os (Rust and Bone) – 2012 > Rehearsals, Antibes, October 4
We posted about the rumours before, but it’s a rumour no longer. Marion Cotillard has been confirmed to have a role in Jacques Audiard’s next movie ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ according to Le Film Français. You need to be registered to read the article but PurePeople has the information as well. Co-starring in the ensemble movie will be Matthias Schoenaerts, Céline Sallette, and Bouli Lanners. Filming will start at the end of September and last 8 weeks – taking place in the North of France, in the area of Paris and at the Côte d’Azur. [edit:] According to Variety filming will take place for a total of 12 weeks and lists Belgium as additional shooting location.
Don’t forget to tune into the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight just after midnight to see Marion Cotillard. Also she is expected to attend the NYC premiere of ‘Contagion‘ (source: Gossiple.com).
John Cameron Mitchell – who directed Marion Cotillard’s Lady Dior short movie in London – ended his Mattachine’s club tour in Los Angeles last Sunday. LA Weekly published an interview with him on the occasion. And there was an interesting tidbid at the end of it:
While in LA, Mitchell will direct his second Dior commercial starring Marion Cotillard.
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.
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?
