Marion Cotillard has replaced Natalie Portman as Lady Macbeth in an upcoming film adaptation of "Macbeth."

The Oscar-winner will star alongside Michael Fassbender in the big-screen take on the Shakespeare play, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pre-production is reportedly slated for the end of the year, with shooting set to begin in the U.K. in January. The film is being produced by "The King's Speech" and "Shame" producers Iain Cumming and Emile Sherman.

Cotillard, who won an Academy Award for playing Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose," has also starred in "Inception," "Contagion," "Rust and Bone" and "The Dark Knight Rises."
