A few weeks ago, we learned that Angelina Jolie had no desire to star in a sequel to the 2008 film Wanted because she was interested in a project by Alfonso Cuaron entitled, Gravity. It seemed like a promising film for the versatile actress but it wasn’t meant to be. She’s no longer attached and according to Deadline Hollywood, Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to star instead.
Gravity originally centered on the sole surviving human member of a space mission, desperately trying to return home to Earth and her daughter. I guess in this case the sole survivor will be Iron Man, I mean Robert Downey Jr. Cuarón co-wrote the screenplay with his 28 year old son Jonás making the film a true family affair. It was set up at Universal but was recently put into turnaround, and now Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures will co-finance.
How will Downey fit Gravity into his busy schedule? The actor plans on shooting the film this summer in London right before he starts Sherlock Holmes 2 with Guy Ritchie in the fall. It will be interesting to see Downey take on a role that features just him and not much else. He definitely has the charisma and on screen presence to keep an audience engaged at all times. Lets see where this goes. [SOURCE]
