Robert Pattinson replacing Colin Farrell in 'Cosmopolis'
The leading role will see Pattinson -- recently tapped to be a presenter at the Golden Globe Awards -- playing a risk-taking trader who loses a major gamble on foreign currency. The flub makes him an assassination target and leads to an inevitable chase across New York, the Wrap reports.
Marion Cotillard will play Pattinson's wife, with actor Paul Giamatti nabbing a supporting role.
Pattinson is currently shooting the final chapters in "The Twilight Saga," which he'll break from next week to present at the Golden Globes.
Tell us -- are you pumped to see Pattinson get his action on?
