It took a while, but ‘Little White Lies‘ will finally be released in U.S in the First Quarter of 2012. MPI Media Group (hoping to ride the wave of Jean Dujardin’s performance in ‘The Artist‘) acquired the rights to the film with a VOD/DVD roll-out to follow.
Warner Bros released last month the trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ which gives us our first glimpse of Marion in the role. The film will be released on 20 July 2012.

In recent times I have not found as much joy in maintaining websites as I used to. Also I have many other important things I don’t want to neglect in real life. So after careful & long consideration I realized that saying goodbye to the world of fansites is the only way forward. Sadly, this means that I will also say goodbye to this website here. However, I am still a great admirer of Marion Cotillard. She’s an exceptional actress and I love her career and her choices. It’s really rare that you get talents, beauty and humanity all in one person – and that the person then also gets the opportunity to showcase this to the world like Marion. This together with the fact that I’ve invested a lot of time and energy into Magnifique Marion Cotillard means that I’d hate to see it deleted, merged or continued in a different spirit.
So I’m happy to tell you that Jess is the new owner of the site and while she too is very busy she’ll make sure that the site stays active and that the important news regarding Marion Cotillard’s career will be posted – as she has done already this month. In addition, Luise who has looked after the site in the past when I was away will also help out from time to time with posting the important news.
And once I have some more free time – but hopefully not in the too distant future – I will add the missing portrait sessions & magazine scans.
