Sandra Bullock in talks to join Robert Downey Jr. in Gravity
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Oscar winner Sandra Bullock is currently in negotiations to star in GRAVITY. The film stars Robert Downey Jr. and will be directed by Alfonso Cuaron (CHILDREN OF MEN, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN). The story is about two astronauts who are stranded in a remote space station after a satellite destroys the rest of the crew and leaves the remaining two (Bullock and Downey Jr.) to find a way home. The lead originally had been offered to Natalie Portman but do to scheduling conflicts she had to drop out. It sounds like a pretty interesting concept with some high quality talent involved. However, I can’t help but think with Portman’s involvement GRAVITY sounded like a critically acclaimed film but with Bullock’s involvement it sounds more like a blockbuster.
