On the Cover of Vogue Paris
After being on the cover US Vogue last month as well as with the other ‘Nine‘ actresses last November it is finally time for Marion Cotillard to grace the cover of Vogue Paris! She was already featured inside the publication last April. But it is more than deserving that she should be honoured with a cover and a 10 page inside feature in her home country.
Just ahead of the release of her upcoming French film ‘Les petits mouchoirs this simply stunning shoot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott promises us to show Marion in Paris and judging from the cover it emphasizes her ‘Old Glamour’ looks – preview courtesy of Dieselmax at the Fashion Spot. The issue hits newsstands on August 26 and I’ll be sure to pick up my issue and post scans then.
[edit:] Interesting tidbit from Fashionologie: “Marion’s [cover] marks the first actress on a Vogue Paris September cover since Nicole Kidman in 2005″
More details about ‘Jeanne au bûcher’
PurePeople posted more details about Marion Cotillard’s upcoming special performances in Jeanne au bûcher.
The dates are now November 28 & 29, 2010 and it will be staged in the Salle Pleyel at the famous Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. Apparently, the previously mentioned choir of 100 children will be accompanied by the Prague Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Serge Baudo). As we know Marion will play the 19 year old heroine Jeanne d’arc who is remembering important events from her life while awaiting to be burned at the stake. Xavier Gallais will play her brother Dominique.
Jeanne au bûcher is an oratorio – a large musical composition including an orchestra, a choir, and soloists. There is generally little or no interaction between the characters, and no props or elaborate costumes. See pictures of Marion taking part in the same oratorio back in July 2005 in Orléans.
More about the rumour of filming in Veracruz
You may remember that a while back we posted about the rumour of Marion Cotillard filming in Veracruz, Mexico. A new article in Imagen del Golfo from Wednesday is possibly revealing more about this.
A movie based on the French story ‘Marsupilami‘ will be acted, directed and produced by Alain Chabat and will be shot in the regions of Catemaco, San Andrés y Santiago Tuxtla, Xalapa, Coatepec, Xico and Jalcomulco. Marion is in talks to do that movie and it would be shot in October, November and the first week of December. The production company is Pixel Films and the movie has a budget of $6 million Euros.

Already set to star in this partially animated comic adaptation in addition to Alain Chabat is Lambert Wilson.

Marion’s journey to Congo
At the beginning of June 2010 Marion Cotillard travelled together with Greenpeace to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Congo: Forests on probation is an impressive 7-part video diary of Marion’s stay there and documents the plundering of the Congolese forests. I am leaving on a short holiday so I don’t have the time to upload pictures but I encourage you to watch these videos.
I will catch up on all the ‘Inception‘ promotion and other Marion news once I’m back next week. And here’s a TV alert: She will be the guest on the Late Late Night Show with Craig Ferguson on the day of ‘Inception‘s LA premiere: July 13.
Marion is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK
Marion Cotillard is gracing the cover of the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. I will be on the lookout for the magazine on newsstands here to add scans. She talks about David Lynch, Dior and being Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘love interest’ in the interview. Be sure to check their website for their upcoming Marion style gallery.
Director confirms “Vivre c’est mieux que mourir”
Fabulous news! At the UK premiere of his movie ‘L’Arnacoeur‘ (Heartbreaker) director Pascal Chaumeil confirmed the casting of Romain Duris and Marion Cotillard in his upcoming comedy ‘Vivre c’est mieux que mourir‘.
What are you working on next? Do you have another project after this?
Yes. We have… probably… again, it’s a comedy, a bit different from Heartbreaker. And it’s, it would be with Romain, normally, he read the script, he likes it and normally it’s with Romain Duris and Marion Cotillard. It’s like an action, adventure comedy. A bit more crazy than L’Arnacoeur.
That sounds wonderful! What is the story about? You said it’s got lots of action and comedy.. is it…
Yeah, it’s difficult to tell the story. But in fact, there are two films in the same film. One is the story happening really in the real life where a guy is working in a hotel, he’s a very small guy in a hotel. And he gets into something, he steals some money from a client because he needs to do something. And then he finds the only place where he’s safe in this hotel is in a room where is a very big producer. And the guy, the producer thinks he’s a screenwriter that he’s waiting for. So he will have to invent a new film, and he’s never been a writer. So we are going from the real situation to the film he’s telling, the story. So, that’s something special, but I think it will be very funny.

And it looks like the promotion for ‘Inception‘ will bring a treat: Marion Cotillard will grace the cover of US Vogue magazine. I can’t wait to see the cover & the editorial!
