Blake Lively vs Scarlett Johansson For GRAVITY
Actresses Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson are both vying to star in Robert Downey Jr.’s upcoming film “Gravity.” Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron wrote the script with Alfonso set to direct the outer space thriller.
Downey Jr. is already attached to star in the film about a group of astronauts performing repair work on the Hubble telescope. When the group is hit with a large amount of satellite space junk, the lone surviving astronaut must find a way to get back to Earth and be reunited with her daughter. The film was originally set up at Universal with Angelina Jolie attached to star, but the project was moved to Warner Bros. and Jolie left the film. Though Downey Jr. also stars in the movie, it is the female lead who becomes the focus of the film.
Warner Bros. appears to be sweet on Lively after her role in the upcoming crime drama “The Town,” casting her in “The Green Lantern.” Johansson on the other hand has an already established relationship with Downey Jr. having starred in “Iron Man 2” with him as the Black Widow.
