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.
Over the past few weeks I updated the gallery with all the recent pictures of Marion Cotillard at various events. Notably, she visited Japan to promote ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) at the end of March and around the movie’s theatrical release there in April many additional stills and promotional pictures were released. If you live in Japan and have additional pictures and/or videos, please don’t hesitate to send them in!
I know, the Cannes Film Festival is around the corner and I’m beyond excited for Marion Cotillard’s new movies but I will not – or only sparingly – be updating this site with new things. There’s never a good time to quit but I still feel the way I posted back in December 2011 and will thus focus on updating this site with all the missing pictures, scans and videos from the past before leaving the site as an open archive.

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).
‘Rust and Bone‘ has been available to buy on DVD & Blu-ray in the UK since February 25. These are the extras:
– Audio Commentary with Jacques Audiard, Thomas Bidegain and Arnaud Calistri
– Making of Rust and Bone
– The Special Effects of Rust and Bone
– Deleted Scenes
There’s also a 2-disc exclusive edition, available for a limited time only at Sainsbury’s which includes these additional extras:
– Exclusive UK Interviews with Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain
– Exclusive BAFTA Q&A with Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts and Jacques Audiard
Also, as of next Tuesday, March 19, it will be available on DVD, Blu-ray as well as Movies On Demand in the US. Extras on the US DVD & Blu-ray include:
– Commentary with director Jacques Audiard and writer of the screenplay Thomas Bidegain

I also added 3 additional gorgeous stills and the DVD & Blu-ray artwork to the gallery:
