After exclusively bringing the news that Marion Cotillard would lead the next drama from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, we managed to catch up with the duo to find out where, production-wise, they find themselves, and what any plans might be for a release. One need only look at previous productions to see they’re very secretive, but we were able to secure a few details.
Blood Ties, French director Guillaume Canet’s fourth feature film about a pair of brothers (played by Billy Crudup and Clive Owen) — one a cop, the other a criminal — in 1970’s New York. Marion Cotillard plays the mother of Chris’s (Owen) children, who’s trying to run her own brothel.
Marion Cotillard, the stunning French actress who won an Oscar for La Vie en Rose, was delighted that she did not have to strip off her clothes to play a prostitute in Guillaume Canet’s Brooklyn crime thriller, Blood Ties.

SHE may have become a fashion icon, but Marion Cotillard’s heart lies in playing roles with soul. Marion Cotillard is exactly as I expect when I meet her. Clad in an ivory-hued Dior pencil skirt and shirt, with nude Louboutin heels, she’s sophisticated, glamorous and charming. But despite her poise and style, she’s famous for choosing roles that enable her to disappear into a character and mask her good looks.
An interview with Marion Cotillard, who worked alongside whales to film the upcoming movie “Rust and Bone.” “Usually when I read a script and I fall in love with a character, most of the time I know who the person is, right away,” said Marion Cotillard, in Toronto last fall with her new film “Rust and Bone” (opening Friday). “In this case, it was really different. I found it very exciting to take a journey that would lead me to eventually know who she was.”
MARION COTILLARD has been working as an actress since she was a teenager, but it was her Oscar-winning performance as Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose” that brought her to the attention of American audiences – and Hollywood filmmakers. Since then she’s worked with directors such as Michael Mann (“Public Enemies”), Woody Allen (“Midnight in Paris”), Steven Soderbergh (“Contagion”) and Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). In “Rust and Bone,” she returns to France for an intimate relationship movie about a whale trainer and the fighter who sort of nurses her back to health after an accident at the Sea World-like water show where she works.
