Natalie Portman offered lead role in Cuaron’s “Gravity”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Angelina Jolie’s loss might be Natalie Portman’s gain.

The actress, currently earning raves for her turn in Darren Aronofsky’s demonic “Black Swan,” reportedly has been offered the lead role in Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi epic “Gravity,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The role had been offered to Jolie numerous times, and the A-lister reportedly passed twice.

The article says Portman “is expected to read the latest version of the script this week and make her decision shortly.” She would play a female astronaut struggling to get home after space debris collides with her station. Portman would join Robert Downey Jr., who has accepted a minor role. Cuaron aims to shoot in January for a 2012 release.

I’m thrilled that Cuaron is going after Portman, and that the actress continues to challenge herself by working with creative forces like Aronofsky, Anderson, Nichols and Forman.

“Black Swan,” meanwhile, plays Toronto this week and opens everywhere on Dec. 1.
