Sandra Bullock To Star in GRAVITY?
GRAVITY has become a merry-go-round in search of its leading lady. Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard, and even Blake Lively have all been considered for the feature, and it looks like Sandra Bullock is next on the list.
Once the Gravity changed hands from Universal Studios to Warners, Jolie left the project; Warners was hesitant to pay her $20 million fee. After passing on Johansson and Lively, the studio turned to Portman. There were a few on and off negations, and Portman is now officially off the feature.
If Bullock’s negations are successful, Gravity is set to be her first project after her great success in Blind Side.
The premise of the outer space thriller is the struggle of a female astronaut’s survival after debris from a exploding satellite hits her and her team. Robert Downey Jr is also set to appear in the film, as the space team’s leader.
