Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American, Latin American and Eastern European rights to Jacques Audiard's recently wrapped romantic mystery "Rust and Bone," from Hengameh Panahi of Celluloid Dreams.  The French filmmaker's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated "A Prophet," the film was adapted by Audiard and Thomas Bidegain from a book of short stories by Craig Davidson.

Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose," "Inception," "Midnight in Paris") plays a whale trainer; while filming in the south of France, paparazzi went wild with shots of her swimming nude in the Mediterranean. Cotillard stars opposite Matthias Schoenarts, who stars in Oscar-nominated Belgian foreign entry "Bullhead."

SPC has released two other films by producer Pascal Caucheteux--"Of Gods and Men" and "A Prophet." Michael Barker and Tom Bernard serve as co-presidents of SPC, which has won 23 Oscars and 101 nominations; this year's noms include Woody Allen's Best Picture nominee "MIdnight in Paris" and foreign nominees "A Separation," "In Darkness" and "Footnote."
