Marion Cotillard joins Rust and Blood for director Jacques Audiard
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Marion Cotillard has been one of my favorite actresses since I caught her in the little-seen French film LOVE ME IF YOU DARE and so I’m pleased to see her get some Stateside love in movies like INCEPTION and of course, the upcoming THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. The actress is keeping busy, starring in this week’s CONTAGION and already has another movie lined up, this time going back to her French roots for director Jacques Audiard in his film RUST AND BLOOD. The film is an adaptation of Canadian writer Craig Davidson’s short stories, some of which feature some heavy duty themes, including animal cruelty, child endangerment and other, even more disturbing sequences.
Along with Cotillard, the cast features a who’s who of foreign film stars, including Matthias Schoenarts, Celine Sallette and Bouli Lanners. Thomas Bidegain will again collaborate with Audiard on the screenplay. No production start date has been announced yet.
