I just found out that Marion’s performance in Barcelona of Jeanne au Bûcher (Joan at the Stake) is going to be released on DVD on March 10. Although the video was released at the time, this is a great opportunity to watch and rewatch Marion’s outstanding performance as Joan of Arc.
Marion has several performances scheduled as Joan of Arc this year. She performed in Monaco and Toulouse on the 8th and 14th of February, respectively. She will resume her performances in Paris on the 4th and 5th of March and then go on to perform in New York City in June. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s a brilliant performance. I’ll be attending the one on the 4th in Paris and will report back!
Marion Cotillard has reportedly signed up to a role in the new Justin Kurzel production. The film, Assassin’s Creed is an adaptation of the Ubisoft video game released in November last year, and which has sold 91 million units so far.
They’re keeping under wraps the role that Cotillard plays, but she’s a versatile actress who won the Oscar for La Vie En Rose, and also played an action role inThe Dark Knight Rises. Like Fassbender, her role is meant to span multiple films if this one scores and becomes a franchise.
Marion will team up with Michael Fassbender for the second time, as the two have worked in Kurzel’s previous production, Macbeth. Production will start in the fall and the release is scheduled December 2016.
