Oh man, I cannot WAIT for Rust and Bone to come out. Here are 5 really good reasons for my delirious excitement:
- The director is Jacques Audiard. He also directed A Prophet, which was one of the best movies EVER.
- Marion Cotillard, one of the greatest working actresses, is in it (the above picture is the first official look at her in the film).
- Matthias Schoenaerts is her co-star. He was the star of Oscar-nominated Bullhead and he was incredible in that.
- It's based on a collection of short stories (of the same name) by Craig Davidson. I have read them, and they are extreme to say the least. Sure, difficult to adapt into a movie, but you can't really go wrong with the talent I just listed.
- The International Trailer for the film has just been released, and you can see it after the jump (via Rope of Silicon)...
So? Are you as psyched as me for this? I cannot begin to explain how brilliant this movie could be. There is some edgy, hard hitting material in the book which could translate to the big screen like few other books I've read.
