Keira Knightley in with Robert Pattinson for 'Cosmopolis'?

Keira Knightley Forget Batman -- Keira Knightley might be getting to hang with Edward Cullen (take that, Anne Hathaway, in all your "Dark Knight Rises" goodness). 

Knightley reportedly has been tapped to replace Marion Cotillard opposite Robert Pattinson in  David Cronenberg's futuristic bank thriller "Cosmopolis." Cotillard had been confirmed as the film's female lead and RPattz's love interest -- he joined the cast the first week of January -- but baby news from the French beauty days later put a new spin on things, like the fact that she'll probably have a major bump by the time Pattinson finishes filming "Breaking Dawn."

"Cosmopolis" production company Alfama Films has thrown Knightley's headshot up on its website along with Pattinson's as the film's lead actors, Hollywood Life observes

Not a bad consolation, considering Knightley lost out on the role of Catwoman to Hathaway in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight Rises." But hey, who cares? Christian Bale's face doesn't sparkle in the sunlight.

Tell us your thoughts on the day's casting moves in the comments section below.

Wow, I just love Keira Knightley. Although Marion Cotillard would have been perfect playing right up next to Robert Pattinson, but so will Keira Knightley. Just finished the book, can't wait to see the movie.

something tells me she is a wrong choice although she is a good actress, anyway it looks like she is out right now. Marion was right for this role and i'd like to see her staring next to Robert. ok, let's wait and see who is going to be that lucky and play his onscreen wife. oh, wait his character cheats on the wife so she isn't so lucky after all. it's really challenging and interesting role for Robert, i wish him all the best.

Interesting. I like Keira and think she will do well. I believe she just finished a film with Cronenberg. There is some negativity at some sites about the direction this film is going with regard to the casting. I have been a fan of Cronenberg's for years and he seems to have an exceptional ability of judging actor's and their potential even if not yet realized. I expect he will pull something surprising out of both Pattinson and Keightly . Those on their high horses about the casting need to step down and just wait and see.

Anne Hathaway is laughing her ass off while Keira Knightly is crying herself to sleep.

I love this pairing. I hope it's true.

I like the casting choice. I am reading Cosmopolis right now and can definitely see her in that role.

This hasn't been confirmed, has it?

Her picture was up on the producer's website last night, then it was removed.

Can the L.A. Times try to get confirmation about this?

Wouldn't they make a beautiful couple?
