Perhaps this is why the new transparency sucks and why a salient argument can be made for the halcyon days of film development behind closed doors: watching the back and forth progress and decline of David Cronenberg‘s gestating “Cosmpolis” is heartbreaking. First, it's an A-list project out the door with Colin Farrell, Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti and then it's a slightly less desireable project with Robert Pattinson and Keira Knightley in the leads instead of Farrell and Cotillard who bailed for a tentpole ("Total Recall") and a baby, respectively (Cotillard is pregnant, the dream for Playlist suitors is collapsing).

Last week, a minor brouhaha erupted when the Alfama Films website posted some info about David Cronenberg's gestating "Cosmpolis," revealing that Marion Cotillard was no longer involved in the film (later confirmed to us by her reps) and that Keira Knightley appeared to have taken over in her role (that info has since been removed). Also, curiously missing from the cast list was Paul Giamatti who was in talks late last year for a role in the film. Well, it looks like the actor is still set to join the project.

Has Paul Giamatti Moved On Too?Well, we were once pretty excited for David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," but with the cast being switched out wholesale, our expectations have diminished. With Robert Pattinson replacing Colin Farrell earlier in the month, it suddenly didn't make much sense to have the previously attached female Marion Cotillard still on board to play his wife (she's ten years his senior). And so no surprise, it looks like she's been replaced too.

We have to admit, our first words upon hearing this were: "What the shit?" Haters gonna hate, but like it or not, Robert Pattinson is in a position to get things green lit, as he is taking over for Colin Farrell in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis."
