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.

Read the The Playlist‘s interpretations of the information available on the Production Website.

[Update] Alfama Films have removed Keira’s name from the website – no doubt because of the huge media attention despite there being no signed contract yet. Regardless, Marion Cotillard is no longer attached to this. The Playlist updated their article with this update: “a rep for Marion Cotillard tells us she indeed had to leave the project because of a scheduling conflict.”

Since yesterday’s filming of the few exterior scenes at WHO in Geneva for ‘Contagion‘ has wrapped details about the shoot have surfaced. Veronica Riemer, of the World Health Organization’s communications department, said that about 80 people, actors, technicians and extras were at WHO from 5 am to 10.30 am. And contrary to some reports Marion Cotillard was the only star involved in the filming. Veronica Riemer added “She left for the airport immediately after the shoot. Everything went very well.”

Seeing as Marion’s character Dr. Leonora Orantes also has a scene at the Geneva airport they might have filmed this on location as well yesterday – like they did with her scene at the Hong Kong airport.

Janet managed to get a quick shot of Marion which she published on her blog. Many thanks for giving me permission to include it in our gallery!

Back in October Marion Cotillard was on the ‘Contagion‘ set in Chicago filming scenes that are meant to take place at WHO headquarters in Geneva. There’s also an exterior scene involving her character and it is being filmed right now on location in Geneva, Switzerland. Filming is expected to last a total of about 3 hours. They will wrap at lunch time.

I usually refrain from posting personal (speak: not work related) information about Marion Cotillard but since this appears to be official I decided to make an exception:

The Oscar winning star, 35, will welcome her first child with longtime love Guillaume Canet, her rep confirms to UsMagazine.com exclusively.

The news was also confirmed by the rep to other US media outlets such as People.com, USA Today and JustJared.com as well as to French PurePeople – who also posted that the baby’s due at the end of May.

Congratulations!
