As reported earlier this week, Robert Pattinson is replacing Colin Farrell in 'Cosmopolis,' David Cronenberg's adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel of the same name.

Colin Farrell recently told MTV News that he wasn't able to take on the role because of scheduling issues.

"Myself and David [Cronenberg], we had good conversations between he and I," Farrell said. "I would love to work with him at some stage, I really would. I really wanted to do that [film]."

The Irish actor also wished Pattinson luck in the role.

"It's a wonderful script. I wish him all the luck in the world with it," he said.
