"GRAVITY" WITH SANDRA BULLOCK & GEORGE CLOONEY STARTS SHOOTING THIS MAY. BETTY WHITE & DORIS ROBERTS IN A CAT FIGHT? JEAN MARC BARR & JOSH LUCAS IN KEROUAC'S "BIG SUR"!
I must admit Alfonso Cuaron has returned my interest in his upcoming project GRAVITY when he kicked Robert Downey Jr.
from the cast and gave the male role to George Clooney beside Sandra Bullock who took the lead role after it was turned down by Rachel Weisz and Angelina Jolie. According to "Collider" the shooting of this sf epic movie should start later this May in UK. Using innovative technology and artsy visual approach, the film will tell the story of a female astronaut, the lone survivor of a space mission, who desperately tries to return to Earth, and reunite with her daughter. The $80 million production will see her racing against time in the middle of dark universe. George Clooney will play the captain of the ship who has a pivotal role in the story.
Now this could be interesting to those who like American literature. A production has just started on BIG SUR, in which French actor Jean-Marc Barr will play Jack Kerouac. According to "MovieWeb" Josh Lucas has been cast as Neal Cassady, with Kate Bosworth playing his girlfriend Billie. The story will follow Jack Kerouac's move from New York to Northern California where he tries to rediscover himself while writing his famous work "On the Road". The semi-autographical tale will also cover Kerouac’s battle with fame, his battle with drugs and his relationship with Cassady’s mistress Billie. Anthony Edwards, Rahda Mitchell, Stana Katic and Balthazar Getty are also in the cast.
