Keira Knightley is set to star in the film opposite Pattinson, replacing original actress Marion Cotillard, due to Cotillard's pregnancy. Knightley will play the wife of Pattinson's character in the slightly futuristic Manhattan drama. Pattinson should have no trouble getting into character as the onscreen husband of fellow Brit Knightley, since he's currently getting in lots of movie marriage practice.

He will prove his acting chops. He needs to be done with the whole Twilight thing and Kristen Stewart. Yes, I know they are very good friends, but it's time for him to move on to bigger and better projects, and starring with bigger named talent (Reese, Angelina, Kiera, Chris W., etc.) As long as he's with Kristen and Twilight, he'll always be associated with that. Go for it Rob...you got the world by the tail!!
