Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard and Belgian actor Matthias Schoenarts star in Rust and Bone, the story of Ali (Schoenarts), a man who moves to Antibes after being put in charge of his young son. Cotillard plays Ali’s love interest, Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, who [SPOILER!] suffers a horrible accident.

The film is Jacques Audiard’s adaptation of Craig Davidson’s epynomous acclaimed collection of short stories. Due in large part to the buzz around Rust and Bone, Davidson's 2007 novel The Fighter has been optioned by Canadian sales company Raven Banner Entertainment for a cinematic adaptation to be directed by Andrew Thomas Hunt. “Andrew’s passion for the novel combined with his hard boiled filmmaking made this a no brainer for me. I look forward to working with him,” Davidson told The Hollywood Reporter.

Audiard’s previous film, Prophet, won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2009 and received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
