It looks like Christopher Nolan is setting up a bit of an Inception reunion over at The Dark Knight Rises. Joining Christian Bale are Inception alums Tom Hardy(already signed on as Bane) , Joseph Gordon-Levitt (currently in talks) and now according the French magazine Le Figaro via Batman-News, Marion Cotillard is in talks to reunite with Nolan for The Dark Knight Rises.
Marion Cotillard in “Batman 3″? The actress, who is expecting a child in the spring with Guillaume Canet, will be scarce this year. She’ll do a single film and her choice fell on Batman 3. This blockbuster produced by Warner Bros.. enables her to work with the director Christopher Nolan, with whom she had turned very successful sci-fi Inception. Marion Cotillard will join the filming this summer in Los Angeles. She will share the bill with Anne Hathaway.

THR is also reporting that a representative for Cotillard said she is “in discussions” to be in The Dark Knight Rises but nothing has been confirmed. Cotillard, who is expecting her first child this spring, is reportedly concerned about scheduling, which would have her in London by mid-June, then L.A. and Pittsburgh for the entire summer, and New York in mid-November to wrap. Nolan has been reading with several other actresses for the part, including Kate Winslet and Rachel Weisz.
Nolan has been searching for two female leads for his Batman finale to play a love interest and a villain. Anne Hathaway was recently cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman. And the rumors are that the second female lead character might be Talia al Ghul (daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul, played by Liam Neeson in Batman Begins). Question is, who will be the love interest and who will be the villain?
