Blake Lively is also interested in the lead role in the upcoming 3D science fiction film called Gravity that stars Robert Downey Jr.
This comes just after reports that Scarlett Johansson has almost signed on for the film. Lively is having meetings with Cuaron on the film and will try to take off Scarlett Johansson. Blake Lively is also a big fan of the star.
But all these could be rumors and Blake might have a supporting role in the film. Johannson has anyway signed for the film and it will be expected to start shooting soon.
Gravity tells the story of a team of astronauts including a talkative character played by Robert Downey Jr. He will play a medical engineer. The crew is asked to abandon their fix for the Hubble Telescope mission and quickly reboard their ship after a sudden implosion of Russian satellites triggers a debris avalanche in orbit that threatens they’re immediate safety. So after a while it just turns into a race to get back to earth.
There is a lot of CGI work done on this film. So there is a lot of excitement all around the place. Robert Downey Jr. Will also be shooting Sherlock Holmes around the same time.
