Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix: 'Low Life' Leads!

Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix are set to star in the upcoming film Low Life, Deadline reports.

Synopsis: Marion “will play a woman attempting to immigrate from Poland. Her American dream turns into a nightmare. While sailing to Ellis Island and a new start, her sister grows deathly ill and she is forced to trade sexual favors for medicine and food to keep her sister alive. Once they land, she is warned to keep quiet about what happened … With no place to go, she falls prey to a charming sleazebag (Phoenix), who persuades her to turn tricks in New York.”

Jeremy Renner is reportedly in discussions to play the third lead as Joaquin‘s character’s cousin, who “is her best chance to escape the nightmarish life she has fallen into.”

James Gray, who previously worked on We Own the Night, is set to direct the film.

The film sounds interesting and not boring . Marion Cotillard is talented and humble . Where did Joaquin disappeared ? I haven’t seen him in ages. He’s very talented as well and should have won that Oscar . Bonne chance !

Joaquin Bottoms is his real name folks.

I find it pathetic that Joaquin and James are working together….AGAIN. This will be the 4th time James has handed Joaquin a job because they’re friends. Are these guys homosexual lovers or something??? This is like Johnny Depp and Tim Burton all over again. I cannot stand when directors repeatedly hire the same actors because of their friendship.

I hear this plot and to me it SCREAMS Edward Norton. Edward would be PERFECT for this role. But no. He hires the dbag who was in “Signs” and “The Village”, and who got crapped on in his last film. Disgraceful.

I believe James Gray hired Joaquin Phoenix because the director knows from personal experience how well they work together Sometimes it is friendship but talent too. And JP’s got lots of it. BTW ISH was like totally faked including that certain scene Lidia mentioned. IMHO I thought Phoenix was superb in “Two Lovers” , sensitive, edgy I really felt for his charcter Leonard Kraditor

fefe5. You’re a **** for wishing Joaquin Phoenix ODed. Bet you wouldn’t want someone to wish the same to you.
