Marion Cotillard has said in recent interviews that she needs a break and that she had to say no to some very good projects. It seems Iranian director’s Ashgar Farhadi upcoming first French movie is one of them. The Playlist reports via Allocine that Bérénice Bejo replaces Marion Cotillard in the social thriller which starts filming in October and is scheduled for release next spring.

If you enjoyed NY Mag’s short summary of Marion’s latest interview you’ll no doubt enjoy Vulture‘s more extensive notes from the full transcript, which I added a while ago:

Marion Cotillard was in La Rochelle (France) yesterday. She joined her friend Maud Fontenoy who with her foundation – of which Marion is the godmother – organized a huge event for kids between 9 and 12 from all over France who had never seen the sea and never been on a boat before. For 30 years the Public Aid Association in France is organizing “The Days for the Ones Forgotten by the Holidays” (La Journée des oubliés des vacances). This year La Rochelle hosted the 4 day event and joined forces with Maud Fontenoy Fondation. The activities included visits to the aquarium as well as to the maritime museum and swimming.

On Monday, Marion joined Maud on her boat Tahia – with which she had sailed around the world – and together with about 50 boats from people supporting the action they took the 300 kids out to sea. NewCastWire, BFMTV.com and TF1 reported about it. And here’s an article from SudOuest.
