Marion Cotillard Talks Macbeth

The new Macbeth movie edges closer and Marion Cotillard, playing the fearsome Lady Macbeth, has spoken for the first time about how filming is progressing.

Speaking to BBC America, she said that she was finding the experience, “Tough, very tough”.

She continued, “The reputation of these characters and this play is that it’s really, really hard - really complex - and it’s the right reputation, because it is, but the director Justin Kurzel really, really is an amazing director..and it’s his second movie and I guess he’s going to be around for a while.”

She also described working with co-star Michael Fassbender saying that, “He surprised me, which is something special on a set. Sometimes I didn’t know what he would do and I was surprised many times.”

Images and a poster (below) have been released, but there's no word quite yet on a release date. We'll keep our eyes peeled.
