Remember the filming for ‘Contagion‘ that took place on January 14 in Geneva? John was there and has more information on the scenes that were being filmed. Thank you for sharing this with us!

There were two scenes: (1) Marion walking from the bus stop into the building and (2) Marion entering the building, showing her ID and walking to the elevator bank. Both scenes were very short (15 – 20 seconds) and there was no dialogue.

Maya Lucchitta managed to take some lovely shots of Marion Cotillard on the set. Many thanks for your permission to put them in our gallery. Please visit her blog to read her full report about the filming.

In my last update about ‘Vivre c’est mieux que mourir‘ – the upcoming collaboration between ‘Heartbreaker‘ director Pascal Chaumeil and its star Romain Duris with Marion Cotillard – filming was scheduled to take place this summer. Back in December Pascal Chaumeil told Premiere.fr:

I can tell you that it’s called ‘Vivre c’est mieux que mourir‘ and that it will star Romain Duris and Marion Cotillard. This will be a little crazier and less romantic than Heartbreaker. Even if it’s still a romantic comedy. And we will most probably be filming it next fall.

Romain Duris confirms this in today’s interview with Le Parisien.

It’s safe to say that Marion Cotillard is no longer attached to ‘Cosmopolis‘. The movie’s Production Website Alfama Films is listing Keira Knightley as the female star now. Even if Keira hasn’t signed anything yet Marion Cotillard is no longer officially attached to the project. This goes in line with the change of direction when they cast the much younger Robert Pattinson to replace Colin Farrell and that Marion Cotillard is unavailable for filming in May due to her baby being due at the same time. Also absent from the cast list on the website is Paul Giamatti.

Read the The Playlist‘s interpretations of the information available on the Production Website.

[Update] Alfama Films have removed Keira’s name from the website – no doubt because of the huge media attention despite there being no signed contract yet. Regardless, Marion Cotillard is no longer attached to this. The Playlist updated their article with this update: “a rep for Marion Cotillard tells us she indeed had to leave the project because of a scheduling conflict.”

Since yesterday’s filming of the few exterior scenes at WHO in Geneva for ‘Contagion‘ has wrapped details about the shoot have surfaced. Veronica Riemer, of the World Health Organization’s communications department, said that about 80 people, actors, technicians and extras were at WHO from 5 am to 10.30 am. And contrary to some reports Marion Cotillard was the only star involved in the filming. Veronica Riemer added “She left for the airport immediately after the shoot. Everything went very well.”

Seeing as Marion’s character Dr. Leonora Orantes also has a scene at the Geneva airport they might have filmed this on location as well yesterday – like they did with her scene at the Hong Kong airport.

Janet managed to get a quick shot of Marion which she published on her blog. Many thanks for giving me permission to include it in our gallery!
