Bad news, dear Audrey fans: it looks like we won’t be seeing Audrey as Coco Chanel before spring 2009! As Variety reported the production enterprises are now eyeing spring 2009 to release the movie. What a pity! Hopefully Audrey will sign on another project maybe…? Otherwise we won’t see her in another movie for over a year.Here the excerpt:
Backers of “Coco Before Chanel,” the Anne Fontaine-helmed pic to star Audrey Tautou, were at AFM touting early buyer interest in their script. But the $15 million film, being produced by French shingles Haut et Court and Cine @ and distribbed by Films Distribution, isn’t ready to lense yet either, It’s now aiming for a fall 2008 shoot and a spring 2009 release.
Thanks the Catherine for the heads-up!
Things have been rather quiet around Audrey lately, but nevertheless I’m trying to keep this site updated regularly, so first of all you should head to the gallery: there is new hi-res scan of Audrey in the October issue of InStyle Russia where Audrey seems to be compared with other famous actresses like Brigitte Bardot (I do not know any Russian, sorry ^_^). Thanks to Elmira for the scan!
There’s also an update on “Coco Avant Chanel“: as IMDb Pro says, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (you might know him as Le Chiffre in “Casino Royale”) is in talks to co-star as Igor in the movie. Igor Strawinsky was a componist who Chanel had an affair with.
