Casting Net: Marion Cotillard tackles corporate bonuses; Plus Juliette Binoche in talks for 'Godzilla', and more

• Marion Cotillard has signed on to work with Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne (The Kid with a Bike) in their upcoming film Deux Jours, Une Nuit. The Oscar-winning actress (for La Vie En Rose in 2008), will play the role of Sandra. Faced with losing her job, she spends a weekend trying to convince her co-workers to give up their bonuses to save her position. The film is expected to shoot in Belgium this summer. Cotillard can be seen next in Blood Ties, written and directed by her partner Guillaume Canet, alongside Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis. [Deadline]

Juliette Binoche is in talks to join the cast of Godzilla. Though Gareth Edwards (Monsters) is attached to direct, no casting decisions will be finalized till Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) finishes his rewrite of Max Borenstein’s (The Seventh Son) original script. In an interview with io9, Darbont said “What we’re trying to do with the new movie is not have it camp, not have it be campy. We’re kind of taking a cool new look at it. But with a lot of tradition in the first film. We want this to be a terrifying force of nature.” As we previously reported, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Bryan Cranston are also in negotiations for the film. [Variety]

This charming and classy crowd-pleaser from inventive French filmmaker Michel Hazanvicius pleases the crowd honestly: A love letter to the golden age of black-and-white silent films in the Star Is Born relationship between a fading silent-movie matinée idol (debonaire Jean Dujardin) and a rising talkies ingenue (sunny Bérénice Bejo), the movie is itself a deftly conjured, jaunty black-and-white silent film with smartly embedded visual references to Hollywood classics. The movie is buoyed along by a swell modern musical score by Ludovic Bource, fashioned in scholarly but sprightly homage to the movie scores of the time. READ FULL STORY
