After Anne Hathaway, another actress is about to join the cast of The Dark Knight Rises. Marion Cotillard, 35, could star in the third installment of the Batman saga signed by Christopher Nolan. Le Figaro reports it. An engagement, that of the French star, arrived by surprise: there was not his name, in fact, among the many rumored for the expected sequel on the most famous bat of the cinema.
The news, if true, would make sense of the crumbs of information (always unofficial) on the plot, which would see Bruce Wayne grappling with Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman (role played by Anne Hathaway) and with the children of Ra’s al Ghul and Carmine Falcone ( characters present in the first chapter of the saga): Talia al Ghul (Marion Cotillard) and Alberto Falcone, who seems to have the face of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but also in this case they are unconfirmed rumors. For the moment the only sure thing is that the start of filming is now near and that the arrival date in the theaters of the new Batman by Christopher Nolan is scheduled for 20 July 2012.
Born into a family of artists, from a mother theater actress and father director, Marion Cotillard began her career in the nineties. He hit the big screen with the appearance in Gérard Pirès’ film Taxxi, in a role he also played in two of the following sequels.
Appearing in numerous French films, Marion Cotillard has also obtained several roles in American films working with directors such as Tim Burton (Big Fish) and Ridley Scott (A very good year). In 2005 she won the César Award for Best Supporting Actress for Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s A Long Sunday of Passions.
The actress won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2008 and makes her the second French actress (after the great Simone Signoret) to win an Oscar for Best Actress.
