Variety reports that Marion Cotillard is in talks to join Robert Zemeckis’ next projet, a spy thriller set during the Second World War. The plot of the film is being kept under wraps but sources say Marion and Brad would most likely play two assassins who are married. When Marion’s character is revealed to be a supporter of the Third Reich, she becomes her husband’s next target.
Robert Zemeckis is aboard to direct the period film, which will reportedly find Pitt and Cotillard as assassins who fall in love while working a mission to take out a German official. They end up getting hitched, but a spanner is thrown in their happiness when Pitt learns that his missus is actually a double agent for the Nazis and his next job will be to kill her.
The film would shoot early next year, once Marion wraps work on Assassin’s Creed.
If this project gets signed, Marion will have four movies lined up shooting into 2016. Seems like it’ll be a busy year!
So many amazing news in one day! There are two new stills from Macbeth

In other news, Marion will be shooting a film next month directed by Xavier Dolan and co-starring Léa Seydoux, Gaspard Ulliel and Vincent Cassel. The film, Juste la Fin du Monde was announced today on the director’s twitter account and is reported to be shooting in May before he films another already mentioned project starring Jessica Chastain. I personally adore Xavier Dolan’s work so I cannot wait for this!

Exciting news! The official selection for this year’s Cannes Film Festival was announced yesterday morning and Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth is on the official competition list. This means the film could win awards and that Marion will be on the race for best actress. This will surely mean we will see Marion Cotillard grace the festival again. This is the fourth year in a row that Marion has had a film competing at the Festival: Rust and Bone in 2012, The Immigrant in 2013 and Two Days, One Night in 2014.
You can check the official selection list here.
Edith Piaf would have been 100 years old this year. To celebrate her centenary, the National Library in Paris has put together an exhibition that will be open until the end of the summer. Last night was the exhibition’s official opening and Marion Cotillard attended the event along with many other French actors, writers and artists. I have added photos of the event to the gallery.

According to Universal France, Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet will lend their voices to the villains Scarlett and Herb Overkill in the upcoming animation film Minions. Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm give those characters their voices in the English spoken version. The film will release July 10 in the United States and July 8 in France.
I found a trailer for the French version with Marion’s character in it. She has disguised her voice a bit but you can hear it here and then when she speaks… I think?
