RDJ Set To Float In Gravity

A little while back, I posted a, uh... post (lol?) about Mrs. Jolie-Pitt passing on Alfonso Cuaron's upcoming project, Gravity.

Now it seems they found an answer to her departure, in none other than Robert Downey himself. With a script by Alfonso's son, Jonas (fill in your own J-bros connection jokes here____) and his father the story is set and ijn place. The details of the project are pretty much as I can see it this: Downey will play an expedition team leader at a remote space station. While he and a female colleague are traveling outside the station, an exploding satellite decimates his team inside. Angelina Jolie was once cast as Downey Jr.'s female co-star, but she has since bailed on the project. There is no word on who will replace her yet, but the script was originally developed with her in mind as most of the film revolves around her character's plight to get back to earth and reunite with her daughter.

The film will commence shooting in London this summer, just in time for him to get down to Sherlock Holmes 2 this fall, also lensing in London. As soon as I know something about who they grab to fill the shoes of the female lead, I'll let you know.

Munki Out.
