We have a few more bits of casting news to bring you this afternoon. First up, Marion Cotillard is set to star in the Jacques Audiard (A Prophet) suspense/thriller Rust and Bone. Per Variety, Cotillard will join a cast that already includes Matthias Schoenarts, Celine Sallette and Bouli Lanners. While very few details about Rust and Bone are divulged, it is believed that the French film will be budgeted at around $22 million, making it one of the most expensive the French will offer this year. Adiard’s A Prophet co-writer, Thomas Bidegain, once again co-penned this latest project. The film is expected to begin a 14-week shoot this fall in the south of France and Belgium.

Next, veteran Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan has rounded out the cast of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby adaptation. Variety reports that Bachchan will take on the role of a “shadowy gambler” named Meyer Wolfsheim. The actor will work alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Gemma Ward on the pic which began filming in 3D this week.
