Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with the continuing adventures of the casting of Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY.
From Natalie Portman being considered to Sandra Bullock being cast in this sci-fi suspense story of a female astronaut trying to get home after an accident in orbit this one has been a rollercoaster ride.
Robert Downey Jr. was attached the whole way as a supporting character, but just bailed according to THR's Heat Vision Blog, sending the project over the abyss of development hell. Looks like George Clooney may be pulling it back, rescuing the project, which is good news for all of us because that means we get a suspense flick set in space by one of the best working filmmakers out there.
So, yay for Clooney! Let's make sure this stays on track! I wanna see it!
