We've always thought there was something rather enchanting about Marion Cotillard.

The "Contagion" star may have a new gig brewing as she's been offered the role of Morgana in the upcoming fantasy adventure, "Arthur & Lancelot," according to Vulture.

Morgana is a sorceress and the half-sister of King Arthur, who is set to be played by "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington. Joel Kinnaman of "The Killing" has been set for the role of Lancelot, and Warner Bros. reportedly very much wants Cotillard's "Dark Knight Rises" co-star, Gary Oldman, for the part of the world-famous magician, Merlin.

With offers out to both Cotillard and Oldman, Warner Bros. continues its reputation as one of Hollywood's must "clubby" studios as it usually stcks to a particular group of actors and directors for its projects. Marion Cotillard seems to definitely be a "member" of the WB club after working on "Inception," "Contagion" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

She's also the perfect choice to play a sorceress, as we're waiting for her to pull a fast one on us and reveal that there's a lot more to her "Dark Knight Rises" role than meets the eye (Talia al Ghul, anyone?).

"Arthur & Lancelot" will begin filming in early 2012 under the direction of David Dobkin ("The Change-Up"). It will storm theaters on March 15, 2013.
