It looks like David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis is set to undergo more changes to its cast. First Robert Pattison replaced Colin Farrel, now it looks like Keira Knightley is set to replace Marion Cotillard.
It would make a little more sense to have Knightley appears opposite Pattinson, considering the age difference. Cotillard also just announced her pregnancy, so it might be a little hard for her to star in the movie with a growing belly.
The production company, Alfama Films, is now listing Keira Knightley as part of the cast and there is only one female lead so it appears Knightley is it, although there hasn't been any confirmation from Knightley's camp.
Cosmopolis features 24 hours in the life of billionaire Eric Packer (now played by Pattinson) as he loses his fortune through a series of events in a single day. Interesting concept.
The film is set to start shooting in May.
Are you excited about the new casting? Or would you have rather seen an older duo play the lead roles?
