We already had a little chat about the upcoming space thriller Gravity, but today we’re here for a little update.
Actually, it’s a huge update, because all George Clooney fans out there have a reason to be satisfied with a new Alfonso Cuaron‘s decision that goes like this: Clooney is replacing Robert Downey Jr. to star alongside Sandra Bullock in Gravity!
So, now we know – Clooney and Bullock will play two astronauts trying to make it back to Earth following a disaster in space.
Robert Downey Jr. dropped out of the Warner Bros. movie in November, right after various casting changes for the lead female role over the past eight months.
Let us remind you, Angelina Jolie, Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman were all rumored for the leading role in the upcoming movie.
Shooting on Cuaron’s ambitious-sounding film will finally kick off in spring after Clooney has finished up work on The Ides Of March, his adaptation of play Farragut North that he will direct next year.
Two Oscar winners in one space thriller?
Not bad at all, stay tuned!
