More Casting News about 'Cosmopolis'
It’s safe to say that Marion Cotillard is no longer attached to ‘Cosmopolis‘. The movie’s Production Website Alfama Films is listing Keira Knightley as the female star now. Even if Keira hasn’t signed anything yet Marion Cotillard is no longer officially attached to the project. This goes in line with the change of direction when they cast the much younger Robert Pattinson to replace Colin Farrell and that Marion Cotillard is unavailable for filming in May due to her baby being due at the same time. Also absent from the cast list on the website is Paul Giamatti.
