According to reports, Robert Downey Jr. is currently in talks to star in ‘Gravity’. Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) is set to direct the film for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. Downey will reportedly play the leader of a team posted at a remote space station. While he and a female colleague are traveling outside the space station, the other team members are decimated by debris from an exploded satellite. At one time, the film was with Universal Studios, and Angelina Jolie was attached to play the female lead. She then passed on the role, and Universal then passed on the film. The film will shoot in London in the summer, and according to reports, the project may finish just as Downey begins work on ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’, which will also shoot in London in the fall.
