Robert Pattinson Replaces Colin Farrell in David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’

Let's look at the different career paths of the two major male stars from Twilight. Taylor Lautner is doing what seems to be boilerplate action/tentpole stuff: Abduction and possibly Stretch bloody Armstrong. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, is going a little more high-minded, co-starring with Cristoph Waltz in Water For Elephants and now taking over for Colin Farrell inDavid Cronenberg's adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis. I know which actor I can respect more, without question. But what does this mean for the dedicated David Cronenbergfan? I expect a lot of Cronenberg fans just exhaled a sad or exasperated sigh, for starters. I'll admit that my own interest in Cosmopolis just took a dive. It's a weird situation, where I can really respect Robert Pattinson for taking the gig, but him doing so really seems to ding the movie's potential. But what the hell; I've trusted Cronenberg »
