Casting Watch: Marion Cotillard to Spend 'Deux Jours, Une Nuit' with the Dardenne Brothers

Marion Cotillard is set to star in the Dardenne brothers’ “Deux Jours, Une Nuit” (“Two Days, One Night”), scheduled to begin production in Belgium this summer. Cotillard will play a woman tasked with convincing her colleagues over the course of one weekend to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job.

Longtime Dardenne collaborator Fabrizio Rongione (“The Kid with a Bike,” “Lorna’s Silence”) will play Cotillard’s husband. All other details are still under wraps.

After starring in 2012’s “Rust and Bone” as an irrevocably injured whale trainer and in “The Dark Knight Rises” as Batman’s femme fatale, Cotillard has James Gray’s “Lowlife” in the 2013 pipeline, with Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix, as well as hubby Guillaume Canet’s thriller “Blood Ties,” with Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis.

Cotillard is also reportedly circling Benoit Jacquot’s adaptation of Octave Mirbeau’s devilishly perverse upstairs-downstairs portrait “Diary of a Chambermaid.”
