Marion Cotillard For The Dark Knight Rises?

MC210The next Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises is quickly becoming an Inception reunion. Pretty much everyone who was involved in Christopher Nolan’s floaty dream-within-a-dream thriller (apart from Leonard DiCaprio) has been rumoured for Batman’s next outing.

Next to join the long list is Marion Cotillard. Batman News reports that according to French newspaper Le Figaro, “The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3.”

It’s not an entirely new rumour, news of her involvement has been bandied about before but as she’s currently pregnant, those rumours weren’t given any credence. But considering that it won’t start shooting till later this year and that there’ll be a long production time, it might be that she’ll have time to fit in both the baby and a potential film role.
