Marion Cotillard has just been crushing it lately. The Immigrant was a masterpiece and Two Days, One Night was a critical success. Her next film, Macbeth, has been highly touted as well. Now it looks like the actress’ follow-up project may be just as distinct and interesting.

Word is buzzing that Cotillard is in talks to join Brad Pitt’s as-yet-untitled World War II romantic drama and she’ll star opposite Pitt.

The film will see the two actors as assassins that are sent to kill a German ambassador in Casablanca and wind up falling in love. The two marry, but the honeymoon ends rather quickly when Pitt is informed of who he married. Now his mission is to kill the woman he loves.

Robert Zemeckis is set to direct from a script by Steven Knight.

While no release date has been announced, the movie is set to shoot next year on location in Casablanca as well as London and Canada.
