Keira Knightley no longer attached to co-star with Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis

This is probably very sad news for director David Cronenberg as A-list stars are dropping like flies from his latest project COSMOPOLIS. He lost Colin Ferrell and Marion Cotillard only to be replaced by Robert Pattinson and supposedly Keira Knightley, but that’s over with. Apparently, Knightley wasn’t completely confirmed to board the film and everyone jumped the gun when she was only in negotiations. That’s quite a hit as this film is supposed to start shooting in May. There’s still time to find a decent actress, but finding one with a big name like Keira Knightley is going to be a little tougher.
This is really a shame because the street cred for COSMOPOLIS just keeps dropping and dropping. Nothing to do with the script though as Ferrell left for another project and Cotillard got pregnant so it just seems like the stars are not aligning for Cronenberg. So who do you think should replace Knightley and play wife to Robert Pattinson now?
