Woody Allen Casts Marion Cotillard in His Next Paris-Set Film
Woody Allen has found another muse to feature in his movies. Allen has cast French Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard (last seen in Nine and in the upcoming Inception) in his next untitled film, which will shoot in Paris this summer. This follows his other new London set film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger that will be out in theaters later this year. Unfortunately this new project doesn't have a title and, as with all of his movies, we don't know what it'll be about (and won't until marketing kicks in). Cotillard stars opposite Owen Wilson and there's been talk that France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy might have a role as well.
The news comes from Deadline Hollywood. We don't know much more about this and there's not much else to say at the moment. It's shooting it Paris and has a very French cast which makes me feel like it's going to be a Parisian romance or comedy or something like that. Interestingly, this is financed under Allen's three-picture deal with Spain's Mediapro, but he's not shooting in Spain this time. I'm a fan of both Cotillard and Allen and will be looking forward to seeing these two work together. Now if only we know more about the story. Oh well. We'll let you know if we hear anything about this or any of Woody Allen's upcoming films.
