Has Keira Knightley replaced Marion Cotillard in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis?

David Cronenberg's upcoming COSMOPOLIS already had its first (kind of big) casting shake-up earlier this month when it was announced that Robert Pattinson would be stepping up to fill in the void left by the departed Colin Farrell. The reaction to that was pleasantly level-headed (I think most of us realized that Cronenberg probably knows what he's doing better than most).

And now, thanks to the ever-watchful eyes of a COSMOPOLIS fansite, it appears that Cronenberg's beautiful DANGEROUS METHOD muse Keira Knightley has stepped in for Marion Cotillard. The fansite discovered that the Alfama Films production company website had updated their casting information and was now listing Knightley alongside Pattinson with nary a sight of Cotillard. Considering that there's only one female role in the project, it was assumed that Knightley had taken over the role. Since then, Knightley's name has been removed from the Alfama Films website, though Cotillard's remained absent as well. Soon after, The Playlist was able to get confirmation that Cotillard was indeed no longer part of the project due to a scheduling conflict (or more accurately, she's due to give birth).

All that still doesn't answer whether or not Knightley has officially been cast in Cronenberg's film, though it wouldn't be surprising if it was so. More on this as it comes. Here's a little bit about the film (based on Don DeLillo's book):

"A financial wunderkind, Packer (Pattinson) risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place."
Extra Tidbit: I love Knightley, so I wouldn't be mad at this if it's true. Can't wait to see her in A DANGEROUS METHOD.

Agreed on the tidbit and I'm willing to give Pattinson a chance.

In Cronenberg we trust.

Keira knightley is a gal whos worth a serious wankfest but back to topic anything involving cronenberg is on my interest radar as the guy is amazing no matter what hes involved in its always interesting, imagine if he made an hary potter film or a fantastic four movie how great would they be.

I like DeLillos subject matter but think he is a pretty poor writer, especially in Cosmopolis. I have faith that Cronenberg will be able to do something with it though, even with Pattinson and 2x4 starring.

Highly anticipated

Big fan of both Cronenberg and DeLillo, I hope the result is as exciting as it sounds on paper. Big question mark surrounding Pattinson but Cronenberg knows what he is doing
