Since winning her Oscar for La Vie En Rose in 2008, Marion Cotillard has steadily worked with distinctive directors on both sides of the Atlantic. That includes turns in Christopher Nolan’s Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris and Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion along with her recent starring roles in Jacques Audiard’s Rust & Bone and James Gray’s upcoming Lowlife. The actress will next pair up with a pair of hardcore auteurs, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. The two-time Palme d’Or-winning brothers will shoot Deux Jours, Une Nuit this summer in their native Belgium. Cotillard will play Sandra, a young woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. Longtime Dardenne collaborator Fabrizio Rongione will play Cotillard’s husband in the social drama, for which further details are being kept under wraps. The film is a co-production between the Dardennes’ Les Films du Fleuve and Denis Freyd’s Archipel 35.
