We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon.  First up, Marion Cotillard is set to lead the next film from brothers Luc and Pierre Dardenne, the drama Deux Jours, Une Nuit (translated to Two Days, One Night).  The Dardenne brothers recently helmed the drama The Kid with the Bike, and penned the script for Two Days, One Night which, per The Film Stage, centers on a woman “who has a weekend to see colleagues and convince them to give up their bonus so she can keep her job.”  Belgian actor Fabrizio Rongione is set to star as Cotillard’s husband in the pic, which will start production early this summer in Belgium.

Hit the jump for casting news concerning the Dennis Lehane adaptation Animal Rescue.

Additionally, The Playlist reports that Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone) has joined the cast of director Michael Roskam’s (Bullhead) crime drama Animal Rescue.  The film stars Tom Hardy as a lonely bartender who rescues a puppy from a garbage can and “becomes the target of the dog’s abusive and mentally unstable former owner, while simultaneously getting caught in the middle of a criminal conspiracy playing out in his mob-controlled bar.”  Noomi Rapace is on tap to co-star, and Schoenaerts will be taking a supporting role in the pic.  Production on the Fox Searchlight film will begin this spring in New York.
