Fact or Fiction: Marion Cotillard joins The Dark Knight Rises
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
It has been speculated that Marion Cotillard has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming comic film THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. According to French newspaper Le Figaro, she has indeed joined the cast. Here’s the exerpt (it’s been translated so don’t mind the grammar):
Marion Cotillard in “Batman 3″. The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3. This blockbuster produced by Warner Bros.. enables her to work with the director Christopher Nolan, with whom she had turned very successful sci-fi Inception. Marion Cotillard will join the filming this summer in Los Angeles. She will share the bill with Anne Hathaway.
Now, this rumor has not been confirmed by studio execs or Cotillard herself, but it would be awesome, no? She did drop out of COSMOPOLIS which stars Robert Pattinson and Paul Giamatti due to her pregnancy, could it be that she dropped that film in order to do THE DARK KNIGHT RISES? I would because it’s Christopher Nolan and he’s an excellent director, but that’s just me. Look for more news about this to come shortly.
