Natalie Portman May Trade Tights for Space Suit in Gravity

Natalie Portman Thumbnail.jpgReady to watch Natalie Portman alone in space for two hours? Studios are betting so. After her widely praised performance in Black Swan, Warner Bros. has given the OK to Alfonso Cuaron to offer Portman the lead role in his sci-fi survival film Gravity. Casting has been going back and forth for some time with rumors that Angelina Jolie's recent departure may have sunk the movie. Here's hoping Portman keeps it alive, because that crazy opening shot still sounds awesome. [THR/Risky Business]

    I read the script, and it's my understanding that there have always been two main characters. The script is told in such a way that this is going to be one of the most uniquely shot movies ever made. Not sure if I can picture Portman as an astronaut, but she definitely has the top level acting chops required for such a demanding role.
