I think someone here may have posted about the Audrey Tautou- Chanel movie but here is more info on the other Chanel movie. Sounds interesting- source IMDB:

Friedkin Casts Marina Hands To Play Coco Chanel
French actress Marina Hands, who won the best actress award for her performance in Lady Chatterley at this year's Césars ceremonies -- the French equivalent of the Oscars -- has been cast by director William Friedkin as fashion figure Coco Chanel in his forthcoming Coco and Igor about the tempestuous affair between Chanel and composer Igor Stravinsky. Friedkin told an interviewer at the Cannes Film Festival that his film takes place in 1913, at the time that Stravinsky's ballet, "The Rite of Spring" opened as a catastrophic failure and Chanel's perfume, Chanel No. 5, had become an enormous success. Actress Audrey Tautou (The Da Vinci Code) is expected to star in another film about Chanel -- before she became famous.
