Marion Cotillard has signed on to a new project: ‘L’ Ennemi public n° 1‘. Synopsis: The story of Jacques Mesrine, France’s public enemy No. 1 during the 1970s. After nearly two decades of legendary criminal feats — from multiple bank robberies and to prison breaks — Mesrine was gunned down by the French police in Paris.
Also attached are Vincent Cassel as Mesrine and Eva Green. Marion Cotillard and Eva Green will be playing two women who were both Mesrine’s lover and partner in crime at different stages of his life. Jean-Francois Richet is directing. Shooting is to begin in May 2007 for 30 (!) weeks in Canada and France.
Upon doing research on this exciting new project I stumbled upon another interesting news: Marion Cotillard is lending her voice to Gloria, an animated penguin, in the French version of ‘Happy Feet‘. In the original version Gloria has been voiced by US-actress Brittany Murphy.
The October issue of French movie magazine ‘Premiere’ features Marion Cotillard on the cover and has brandnew gorgeous 4 full-page and 1 double-page photo shoots. There are also some new pictures of her as Edith Piaf. I’ve added them separately to the ‘La Môme’ scans album.
I was busy making progress on the Marion Cotillard screencaps:

101 Un Long Dimanche de fiançailles – Screencaptures
615 Jeux d’Enfants – Screencaptures
178 Jeux d’Enfants – Making Of

Marion Cotillard told the French newspaper Le Parisien that she’s going to take a break from filming back-to-back. English translation:
“Sometimes you arrive at a point where to be in the mood for telling stories you have to live your own. Right now, I’m not in the mood for telling a story, I can’t read scripts. That’s why I leave to travel. I’m going to Polynesia and to Peru, to the Amazonian forest. To nourish myself.”
