Robert Downey Jr. To Star in 3D Sci-Fi Film Gravity 2010-03-15 07:30:00

Robert Downey Jr. to Try Defying Gravity

The Iron Man is going to blast off! Robert Downey Jr. has lined up his next big blockbuster: the actor is in talks to star in Gravity, a sci-fi film directed by Alfonso Cuaron.

This is just the latest in Downey Jr.'s string of action flicks — Iron Man 2 is out May 7, and he starts shooting the sequel to Sherlock Holmes this Fall. Bonus: Gravity will go somewhere (besides space) the actor hasn't gone before: it'll be in 3D! RDJ will play the leader of a group of astronauts who is left alone in orbit with a female colleague when his team is destroyed by an exploded satellite. Angelina Jolie was reportedly attached to the costar role, but has since dropped out.

I have no trouble envisioning RDJ in the part since he's already proved to be one of my favorite action stars. What say you?

Oooohh, I'm glad they're going to do a Sherlock Holmes sequel. Even though the movie deviated from the book in several significant ways (at least to me), it was still really good! Would love to see another, if it can be done well.
