Natalie Portman, right out of the laurels of Black Swan in Venice, and Sandra Bullock, winner of the Oscar for best actress, vie for the title role of Gravity. This is the new film by Alfonso Cuaron, who will be also starring Robert Downey Jr.
The studio, Warner Bros, Sandra Bullock is preferred that the film, because of his renewed celebrity status, recovered with 'The Blind Side. " Meanwhile, Natalie Portman is the initial choice of director Alfonso Cuaron.
Both try to play the trump card price: Portman is significantly cheaper to hire Bullock, but the study is initially interested in betting on big names in the cast. It is similar, but in reverse, to what is happening with Tom Cruise and 'In the Mountains of Madness', otherwise exemplary Mexican, Guillermo del Toro.
Gravity gives us two astronauts standing in a space module and trying to time trial back to earth after their space base has been destroyed by a meteorite.
The truth: who choose to choose, Robert Downey Jr. will be in good company in the damn module.
