Keira Knightley might be replacing Marion Cotillard as Robert Pattinson’s wife in Cosmopolis

Robert Pattinson‘s next leading lady might be the beautiful (and newly single) Keira Knightley. According to Alfama films production, Keira, 25,has been cast alongside Rob, 24, in Cosmopolis. She would be replacing Marion Cotillard, who has just recently announced her pregnancy.

Keira, is booked through April 30 for her run in The Children’s Hour alongside Elisabeth Moss, but since Cosmpolis doesn’t start filming until May 23, the timing could work out for her. Director David Cronenberg also just finished filming with Keira on A Dangerous Method, so it would make sense that they’d want to partner up together.

The Academy Award nominated actress is a slender, British brunette who would be great to see on the big screen next to the handsome R-Patz. Keira would play Elise Shifrin, Rob’s character Eric Packer’s young wife with whom he has a strained relationship.

It hasn’t been confirmed yet but we’ll let you know as soon as it is. So tell us — what do you think of the pairing?
