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.

The past few days have seen some pretty ridiculous music movie stories circulating, which should serve as a general reminder to bloggers everywhere of a rule that you can't forget: if the story sounds too good to be true and originates from the British press, triple check your sources. Especially when it's an old rumor.

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."

Yesterday, a trailer debuted on the Apple website. A trailer that film fans have been waiting for for years. A period drama, with modern-day sequences, with a heartthrob in the lead role, and clearly aiming for a certain lyrical quality. A film that Fox Searchlight will release next spring. A trailer that blew our goddamn minds.That trailer, as you may have noticed, was not "Water For Elephants."

Yes, this is the film "Inglourious Basterds" breakout star and Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz chose to do over David Cronenberg's psychosexual drama about the story of friends-turned-rivals Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, "A Dangerous Method." We didn't understand it then; we still don't understand it now.
