Remember ‘Cosmopolis‘ – the David Cronenberg movie Marion Cotillard’s been attached to since last May? It seems that Colin Farrell who had been attached to the project to take the lead role is out of the picture because Deadline reports that Robert Pattinson has signed for the part of Eric Packer.

While all the news reports are still mentioning Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti (also “in talks” to join according to a report by The Playlist from last December) their involvement is as of yet unclear – there haven’t been any reports of them actually signing on to the movie. If Marion is still on board she’d play Pattinson’s wife.

Welcome to 2011! I know I haven’t managed to add all the missing pictures from 2010 appearances and magazine features to the gallery but since I already skipped it last year for these reasons I decided to compile a review of 2010 nontheless. What are your choices? Feel free to comment!

Best News: Marion Cotillard being awarded the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last January and ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) being the most successful French movie of the year. And of course Marion joining the French rock band Yodélice as Simone.

Worst News: After Marion’s participation in the oratorio ‘Jeanne au bûcher‘ was announced for November back in August we didn’t hear anything further. November came and went without the special performances happening. And 48 hours before the year ended Harry Potter passed ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) at the French box office keeping it from being the most successful movie of the year in France.

Favourite magazine cover:

As always Marion Cotillard graced quite a number of covers – all of which gorgeous. But I really like this from Jalouse – March 2010.

On Sunday the International Press Academy handed out the Satellite Awards. While Marion Cotillard didn’t win for her nominated supporting performance in ‘Inception‘ (Jacki Weaver did for ‘Animal Kingdom‘) the movie itself won in the categories ‘Original Score’ (Hans Zimmer), ‘Cinematography’ (Wally Pfister), and ‘Art Direction & Production Design’ – 3 wins out of 11 nominations.

But good news is that they uploaded Marion’s acceptance speech from when she won ‘Best Actress’ on December 16, 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘. She wasn’t able to attend but recorded this lovely message from Paris.
