Luise recently added more pics of Marion Cotillard and Clive Owen on the set of ‘Blood Ties‘ on June 20.

The movie will be distributed in France by Mars Distribution and they tweeted last week that ‘Blood Ties‘ will be released in French theatres on October 30, 2013.

I also added digital scans of the December/January edition of French Premiere magazine. Apart from a small preview of the James Gray movie ‘Lowlife‘ it features a lengthy interview with Guillaume Canet about the process of writing, casting and directing ‘Blood Ties‘, his first movie in English and shot in New York, US. There’s only one picture of Marion and little information but we learn that Guillaume is a fan of hers beyond what connects them in real life.
