The Duchess star had reportedly been tapped to take over from the French actress after she "left the project because of a scheduling conflict", said Deadline, with her name listed on the Alfama Films website alongside Robert Pattinson - but fans were left confused when her name disappeared hours later.

Paul Giamatti, who had been in talks for a role, is also notably missing from the list.

Twilight heartthrob Robert, the sole name on the site, would play newly-married billionaire Eric Packer, while Marion was tipped to play his wife.

Based on Don DeLillo's book of the same name, the film follows a day in Eric's life as he cheats on his spouse, is pursued by a stalker, gets attacked by a protester and gambles with his fortune.

Cosmopolis is expected to start filming in Toronto and New York in May.
