    'The Artist' Star Bérénice Bejo Replaces Marion Cotillard In 'A Separation' Director Asghar Farhadi's Next Film

    'The Artist' Helmer Michel Hazanavicius & Wife Berenice Bejo Reteaming For Movie Inspired By Fred Zinneman's 'The Search'

    When you're the helmer and star of a near-universally beloved sleeper hit, with Oscars virtually in the bag, it's one of the few scenarios (bar a billion dollar hit) which means your next project can be pretty much whatever you like. The offers roll in, of course, but you have enough kudos t...

    Director Wanted To Revive Silent Movie Style For A Contemporary Movie AudienceDespite stealing audiences' hearts and walking away from the prestigious Cannes Film Festival with the Best Actor Award, Michel Hazanavicius's nostalgia-fueled silent feature "The Artist" may have its work cut out for it.
