Natalie Portman Attached to Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity…Almost

Just confirm this deal already! Everything about this movie screams AMAZING!

Earlier this month, Angelina Jolie pulled out of Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron's sci-fi epic Gravity, and the filmmakers approached Natalie Portman about taking over the role.

Now, Portman is in active negotiations to secure the lead role, and it looks like it's nearly a done deal.

After Jolie's exit from the project, many actresses were rumored to be up for the role, including Rachel Weisz, Blake Lively, and most recently Sandra Bullock. We're thinking they're making the right move with Natalie.

The script was written by Alfonso and his son Jonas Cuaron, which we think is pretty cool. How often have we seen father/son writing teams? We can't think of all that many.

The story is about a woman who's the sole survivor of a space station crash, and wants to return home to her daughter. Sounds very reminiscent of other intense, isolation-themed movies such as Moon and Cast Away. We are totally on board!

Word going around is that Robert Downey Jr. will appear in the film as well. No details yet as far as the capacity of the role is concerned, but his involvement is generally a good thing.

We're pumped to hear more as the details arise!

What do U think of this project? Should Angie have taken the role?

    Lol! Angelina did the movie a HUGE favor by dropping out. She is nothing but a box office bomb, lately. If they ever wanted to make any money off of this, they never should have asked Angelina "Oldie" to be in it in the first place.
