Sandra Bullock Reteams With George Clooney

Given how much they learned about crisis while working on Gravity together, it hardly seems surprising that Sandra Bullock would end up in a George Clooney -produced film. And so it has come to pass, with Bullock in talks to star in Our Brand Is Crisis . Actually, the pair discussed the idea while on the long slog of press tours for Alfonso Cuaron’s space thriller. Crisis is adapted from Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary, which saw President Clinton’s former advisors James Carville and Stan Greenberg applying what they had learned in the trenches of American politics to a campaign in Bolivia, and the effects it has on the process. Despite the close relationship between Clooney and Bullock, this is far from a done deal. With the success of Gravity (and The Heat) still fresh, Bullock’s naturally being courted for several movies right now and Crisis is just one of them. Still, with Argo duo Clooney and Grant Heslov producing, it’s got to be an attractive proposition. Will it be her

George Clooney To Star In Warner Bros. "Gravity"

George Clooney Replaces Robert Downey Jr. George Clooney will star opposite Sandra Bullock in Gravity , Warner Bros.’ and Legendary Pictures' 3D outer space thriller that has become a game of musical chairs for actors. The initial pairing for the Alfonso Cuaron -directed project -- about a female astronaut struggling to survive and trying to make it to Earth after a disaster in space -- was to have been Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. Then came a protracted series of reversals that saw Jolie leave and come back, and actresses Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman involved with the movie to varying degrees, all within the last eight months. Downey stuck with the project throughout the various casting changes but in mid-November, just as things looked set with Bullock, he bailed. Warner considered scrapping the project but conducted a Hail Mary search for the male lead who, while doesn’t carry the movie, is still pivotal in the firs

Robert Downey Jr. To Star In How to Talk to Girls

Robert Downey Jr. Got His Eye On A Girl Robert Downey Jr. has officially left the orbit of Gravity , the Alfonso Cuaron outer space survival thriller set up at Warner Bros. But those who need their Downey fix can turn their attention to Fox’s How to Talk to Girls . Sources say that actor is circling the project, an adaptation of a book by a nine-year old boy revolving around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex. Downey, along with wife and producing partner Susan Downey, would also come aboard as a producer, joining Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps banner. Girls was written by Alec Greven , then 9 years old, as a school project. It landed the boy a publishing deal (at least three other How to Talk to ... books have been written) and put him on talk shows across the country. Ben Karlin and Stu Zicherman wrote a draft but word is that the project is being reconceived and developed as a Downey vehicle. Susan Downey will spearhead the development process and will oversee the

Sandra Bullock To Reunite With The Proposal Director

Sandra Bullock To Reunite With The Proposal Director Sandra Bullock is reuniting with the director of The Proposal , Anne Fletcher, for an untitled project. Warner Bros. has picked up the pitch, which hails from scribes Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis. Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment are producing. Bullock is attached to star, while Fletcher will direct. Details are scarce, but the contemporary-set project is described as in the vein of the 1978 Paul Mazursky film An Unmarried Woman and Saturday Night Fever. Bullock also will executive produce with her Fortis Films partner Maggie Biggar. Offspring's Matt Smith also is executive producing. Sarah Schechter is overseeing for Warners. The acquisition comes as Bullock is in negotiations to star in the studio's outer space survival movie, Gravity , from director Alfonso Cuaron. Gravity is vying with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close as her next movie. Choreographer-turned-director Fletcher,

Natalie Portman Offered "Gravity"

 "Gravity"  Pulls Natalie Portman To A Space Station Natalie Portman has fielded an offer from Warner Bros. to star in the drama " Gravity ." The lead in the epic survival story, co-written by Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron, has been a highly sought role for months, with Angelina Jolie pulling out of it recently. The $80 million 3D survival story, which Alfonso Cuaron will direct, centers on a woman stranded on a space station after satellite debris slams into it and wipes out the rest of the crew. Robert Downey Jr. already has committed to a supporting role, but much of the picture is devoted to the female character, who must survive a solitary ordeal much in the way Tom Hanks did in "Cast Away" or James Franco does in "127 Hours," another Telluride sneak screening. In the wake of "Swan" notices, Cuaron finally got the green light from the studio to relay the offer to Portman without requiring a screen test. Portman, who couldn't

Angelina Jolie Chooses "Gravity" Over Wanted 2

Angelina Jolie Chooses "Gravity" Over Wanted 2 Universal craved a sequel to Angelina Jolie’s assassination tango/loom tutorial Wanted. Unfortunately for the studio, Jolie is leaving them…wanting. We’ve just heard the actress has pulled out of the planned Timur Bekmambetov-directed sequel at Universal, and the studio has pulled the plug rather than recast the film. As for Jolie, we hear she is now intent on starring in Warner Bros.’ Gravity, a space thriller to be directed by Children of Men’s Alfonso Cuarón from a script he wrote with his 28-year-old son, Jonás. Like Wanted 2, Gravity had previously been set up at Universal, with Jolie set to star. But a few weeks ago, the studio put Gravity into turnaround, possibly because it’s such an artistically challenging project: Jolie would be alone on-screen for much of the movie, playing the sole surviving human member of a space mission, desperately trying to return home to Earth and her daughter. (In that way it’s reminiscent of
