Yesterday, Le Figaro mentioned in their Cannes article that Marion Cotillard will be filming the new movie by Iranian director Asghar Farhadi in Paris in the fall. What do we know about it?
Back in January The Daily Beast reported:
Farhadi is currently working on a screenplay with acclaimed writer Yazmina Reza, who penned the play God of Carnage, that he hopes to shoot in France soon; he has approached Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) and Marion Cotillard for leads.
Various casting sites posted an ad on Saturday looking for 2 girls (10 and 14 years old) to play the daughters of Marion’s character.
Payvand Iran News reported:
The acclaimed Iranian director Asghar Farhadi will shoot a French-language film in Paris next fall. The news was announced by Memento Films’ Alexandre Mallet-Guy, who told the press that further details about the film will be released at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Mallet-Guy did say, however, that the film is not the previously announced love story between an Iranian girl and a North African boy set in Paris.
And finally, director Asghar Farhadi will be awarded first EU MEDIA prize on Sunday, May 20, during the Cannes Film Festival for this mystery project. Hopefully, this is when we’ll get more information.
“I am proud to give this award to Mr Farhadi today for this film project which has a strong cultural identity and illustrates the openness of European culture, which I defend daily.After the worldwide success of his masterpiece “A Separation”, he gives us a project which is committed and moving in equal measure and above all draws on universality” said Ms Vassiliou.
Asghar Farhadi said, “In these times when certain politicians are trying to turn the beautiful rainbow of cultural diversity in the world into differences and confrontations, I believe that this MEDIA award for my next film project is a very encouraging sign. I would therefore like to warmly thank the MEDIA programme, and commend it for its lucid and open vision of mutual and respectful exchanges between cultures.”
A brief interview to promote the upcoming Cannes premiere and French cinema release of ‘De rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) recorded on Saturday aired yesterday morning on France 2‘s Télématin.
Last Saturday, Marion Cotillard was the guest & co-editor of Marie Drucker’s radio show Le Journal Inattendu and on Sunday she was interviewed about ‘De Rouille et d’os‘ (Rust & Bone) together with Matthias Schoenaerts during the evening news on French TV channel France 2. They showed the adorable clip of 6 year old Marion in ‘La monde des tout petits‘ which already ‘Les enfants de la télé’ showed to Marion back in September 2010. And Will Smith, who was a guest on the news show the day before, had a message for Marion, suggesting they should do a movie together (she replied that she’d love to make a comedy with him).:http://marion-cotillard.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/2012-05-12-RTL.mp3|titles=Le
