Marion Cotillard could be set for a medieval adventure in Arthur And Lancelot.
The Oscar-winning French starlet is said to have been offered the role of Morgana, the sorceress half-sister to Arthur, in David Dobkin’s upcoming adaptation, Vulture reports.
The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman has already been cast as Lancelot, while Luke Evans, Toby Kebbell, Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harington and his on-screen half-brother Richard Madden are rumoured to be in the running to portray King Arthur.
Filming is scheduled to begin next year.
Following her recent turns in Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris and Contagion, Marion is reuniting with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight Rises alongside Christian Bale, Sir Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway.

The new campaign of ‘Miss Dior’ has hit and this time it is Hollywood as the location.
L.A. WOMAN: Marion Cotillard continues to rack up the air miles in her role as a Christian Dior spokesmodel. The Oscar-winning actress — who has already been pictured in Paris, New York, Shanghai and London for the French brand — traveled to Los Angeles recently to pose for photographer Steven Klein at a groovy house by architect John Lautner. She is seen clutching a Lady Dior bag in multicolored crocodile, with a swimming pool and the Hollywood hills in the background. Giovanna Battaglia styled the ad, with Julien d’Ys on hair and Christophe Danchaud doing makeup. The campaign is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Nov. 14 and the Financial Times on Nov. 19. French weeklies and December monthlies are to follow.

Screendaily has posted an article on this month’s American Film Market (AFM). One film which will be shopped around is Guillaume Canet’s US Remake of ‘Les Liens Du Sang’ now being called ‘Blood Ties’ (in which James Gray helped with the script).
The article states that Marion may be potentially starring in the project.
Sales company Wild Bunch are close to coming on to rep Canet’s project, and it’s said that Mark Wahlberg (who worked with Gray on both “The Yards” and “We Own The Night”) is circling the role of one of the brothers, with Cotillard and “Avatar” lead Zoe Saldana also linked to the film.
It also confirms that James Gray is planning to start filming ‘Low Life’ in January.
