Robert Downey Jr. might be leaving Gravity

10.25.2010

The days of Robert Downey Jr. as co-pilot to Sandra Bullock in Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY may be numbered.

Early on Downey decided to sign up for the film because he was a big fan of Cuaron. So the actor planned on juggling some things around in order to do the project. At first, he was going to shoot GRAVITY then work on SHERLOCK HOLMES 2. This was until the lead actress drama came along. When Natalie Portman dropped out and no one was filling in for her, Downey thought it might be best to move on since he did have other films to attend to.

Warner Bros. are saying that Downey won't exit, but Deadline is hearing a different story. The studio plans on working out the scheduling problems, but haven't had a lot of luck rounding up Downey since he has been doing press junkets for DUE DATE. What can you do? The guy is just really busy.

The delays are still on going. Sandra Bullock hasn't even been locked on for the lead. Even though Deadline is reporting that she has the part.

The part that Downey signed up for is not a big one. The lead female role is the dominant one. The film centers on, "a space station team member hellbent on finding her way back to earth and her daughter, after the station is destroyed by a debris field from an exploded asteroid." Basically they could throw any big actor into the role, but Downey is the one they want. Everyone is trying to get him to stay on, even Bullock.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Extra Tidbit: Do you want Robert Downey Jr. to tell you that he wants love with the voice of Elton John? Sure you do. Go here and get caught in his gaze.

Iīm more worried about Bullock being the lead.. Is this confirmed? Downey isnīt important for this movie, get Rockwell or Gosling or someone instead.

Maybe mr Downey is not so keen on Bullock either...she just does not seem like a good fit for this one. How about Jovovich?

Well this sucks. Honestly, how hard is it for one actress to sign on for this. With the talent involved, the worse this could be is great. I hope Downey stays on cause if he doesn't then my interest for this film will be gone.

Honestly, at this point, I don't care if they put Dane Cook in the role. I just want to see another f*****g Alfonso Cuaron movie.
