Johansson or Lively in "Gravity"?

Gravity, Alfonso Cuaron's sci-fi film is closer to finding a lead role.

Scarlett Johansson, who played Black Widow in Iron Man 2, and Blake Lively, who is the female interest in Green Lantern, have both been screen tested, with results given in the next few weeks.

The role description is of an astronaut who must get back home once her craft is hit by an avalanche of satellite junk and debris.

Angelina Jolie and Marion Cotillard have also had screen tests, but Cuaron is looking for a younger cast, even though Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., has also landed a role.

The film is set for filming early next year, depending on how long it takes to find a lead actress.

  1. They're both pretty bland. I wish they went with Marion Cotillard.
