The star of "La Vie en Rose", Marion Cotillard, is reportedly going to join Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in Universal Pictures' latest project "Public Enemies". The actress nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in "Rose" has been set to star in the Depression-era crime drama.

According to Variety, Cotillard was chosen by "Enemies" helmer Michael Mann to depict Billie Frechette, the singer girlfriend of the country's most notorious gangster John Dillinger. Aside from starring opposite Depp and Bale, the 32-year-old French actress will play alongside Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Jason Clarke.

Based on Brian Burroughs' non-fiction novel, "Enemies" will see Tatum starring as outlaw Pretty Boy Floyd, Ribisi as Alvin Karpis and Clarke as John "Red" Hamilton, whereas Dorff who is still in negotiation is expected to play Homer Van Meter. The leading characters Dillinger and Melvin Purvis will be starred by Depp and Bale respectively. The film is set to start filming on March 10 in Chicago.

Though mostly appearing in French films, "Enemies" won't be Cotillard's first English-language film. Prior to this project, she has starred in Hollywood movies, including Ridley Scott's romantic comedy film "A Good Year" alongside Russell Crowe and in Tim Burton's fantasy drama "Big Fish" with Ewan McGregor, Jessica Lange and Helena Bonham Carter. Supposedly, she is one of Rob Marshall-directed musical "Nine" cast, but due to the postponing of the project by the Weinstein Co., she is available for "Enemies".
