The male role in Gravity is actually a smaller supporting part, with Bullock's character handling the majority of the screen time. Despite the size of the role, Downey Jr had been attached for the longest to the project as a series of actresses came and went. Bullock finally settled into the role which had at times interested Angeline Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, and Natalie Portman.
Gravity is an epic survival story about a female astronaut (Bullock) who has to try and stay alive after the space station is damaged. The project's set up at Warner Bros and is expected to - barring any other cast changes - begin shooting early next year.
