Is Keira Knightley Robert Pattinson’s Newest Co-Star?

/ January 21, 2011

Keira Knightley might soon be sharing the silver screen with none other than Robert Pattinson.

Keira, 25, has reportedly been tapped to replace Marion Cotillard in David Cronenberg’s new thriller, Cosmopolis. Marion had originally been cast as RPattz’s love interest but her recent pregnancy news allegedly forced her to drop out of the project.

Filming for Cosmopolis will take place once Rob wraps filming for Breaking Dawn later this year.

Rob and Keira both have their fair share of career similarities– Keira shot to fame through a franchise (Pirates of the Carribean) and later went on to star in period pieces while Rob is currently wrapping up his first star-making franchise (The Twilight Saga) and has several period pieces in the works.

Another conversation starter between the two: Keria recently starred in Never Let Me Go with Rob’s buddy Andrew Garfield.

Other co-stars for the new flick include recent Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti and Tom Archeacon.
