Marion Cotillard is in negotiations to co-star with Brad Pitt in Paramount, New Regency and Graham King’s untitled period spy thriller.
Robert Zemeckis is directing the pic from a script by Steven Knight.
King, who first developed the project and brought it to Pitt, will produce alongside Zemeckis and Steve Starkey. The project will be produced through King’s GK Films banner with New Regency. Executive producers are Knight, Jack Rapke, Patrick McCormick and Denis O’Sullivan.
The logline for Knight’s script is being kept under wraps.
The pairing of Pitt and Cotillard was almost not meant to be as the shoot date for this movie did not initially work with Cotillard’s schedule. She will next shoot the Fox and New Regency action pic “Assassin’s Creed” with Michael Fassbender.
