After exclusively bringing the news that Marion Cotillard would lead the next drama from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, we managed to catch up with the duo to find out where, production-wise, they find themselves, and what any plans might be for a release. One need only look at previous productions to see they’re very secretive, but we were able to secure a few details.
Magnifique Marion Cotillard
Blood Ties, French director Guillaume Canet’s fourth feature film about a pair of brothers (played by Billy Crudup and Clive Owen) — one a cop, the other a criminal — in 1970’s New York. Marion Cotillard plays the mother of Chris’s (Owen) children, who’s trying to run her own brothel.
Marion Cotillard, the stunning French actress who won an Oscar for La Vie en Rose, was delighted that she did not have to strip off her clothes to play a prostitute in Guillaume Canet’s Brooklyn crime thriller, Blood Ties.
