It can't be easy juggling a Hollywood career and a stable romantic relationship, but it must be even more difficult bringing aspects of that relationship to the big screen. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently vented their dirty laundry in By the Sea, a film that pretty much nobody saw but them. And now Marion Cotillard and her partner, filmmaker/actor Guillaume Canet, are preparing to do the same, but in a more light-hearted way.
Being shopped at Cannes next month is Rock 'n' Roll, a comedy which Canet will direct and star in alongside Cotillard. The trick is, they'll be playing versions of themselves with Canet as an actor who changes his life around when a gorgeous young actress tells him he's no longer as "bangable" as he used to be. Can't blame him for that. Gilles Lellouche, Fanny Ardant, Philippe Lefebvre and Yvan Attal co-star.
Canet has directed Cotillard a couple of times before in Little White Lies and the '70s crime thriller, Blood Ties. They also starred together in Love Me If You Dare and 2009's The Last Flight. [ScreenDaily]
