Marion Cotillard will follow her Golden Globe-nominated turn in 'Rust and Bone' with French language film 'Two Days, One Night' directed by Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne
Marion Cotillard will star in 'Two Days, One Night'.
The actress - who is coming off a wave of award nominations for her role in 'Rust and Bone' - has booked her next part in Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne's French language film about a woman who has to convince her co-workers to give up their bonuses so she can keep her job.
Co-director Luc told TheFilmStage.com: "We are looking forward to collaborating with Marion. We are all big fans of each others' work."
Palme d'Or winning brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre won critical acclaim for their 2011 film, 'The Kid with the Bike', and have been working on the script for the latest project - which will officially be titled 'Deux Jours, Une Nuit' - for several years, but only finished working on it last year.
Belgian actor Fabrizio Rongione, who starred in the brothers' earlier directorial effort 'The Kid with the Bike', will co-star as Marion's husband as she tries to visit all of her colleagues over the limited time span of two days in a desperate bid to hold on to her job.
Filming is expected to begin in Belgium this summer, with Les Films du Fleuve producing.
