Robert Pattinson to replace Colin Farrell in Cosmopolis

Canadian director David Cronenberg has found a replacement for Colin Farrell in the film Cosmopolis — Twilight‘s very own Robert Pattinson. Farrell bowed out due to a prior commitment to play a role in Total Recall. The two productions will be filming at approximately the same time this spring. Set in New York city, Cosmopolis, which takes place over the course of 24 hours, is based on the 2003 novel by Don DeLillo. Pattinson will play a finan­cial wiz­ard who is considering risking his entire for­tune on bet­ting against the rise of the Japan­ese yen. He gets sidetracked when the limo he’s riding in gets held up due to a protest, a pres­i­den­tial visit, and a rapper’s funeral. The movie begins shooting mid-May in Toronto, as soon as Pattinson wraps filming on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. He’ll next appear on the big screen in Water for Elephants, opposite Reese Witherspoon.

    He’s super hot, and really nice, and seems in love with Kristen! Though I’ve heard rumors he used to date a guy before he got famous!!!?

    Not sure why anyone spends time commenting on him – his 15 minutes are fame are about to expire- once the last Twilight is done he will also be done!

    15 MINUTES of fame….like him or not seems way off to me…

    I read about this, I don’t think it’s the Total Recall you’re thinking of, I think it’s a different movie with the same name.

    No he didn’t date a guy. He played Salvadore Dali in a film and it was during the time Dali dated a guy, but then he went on to marry a woman. And judging his roles in other movies, he’s extremely talented and I’m sure his career will go on for as long as he wants it to.
