Natalie Portman Offered Role in Gravity

After much speculation, Black Swan actress Natalie Portman has been offered the lead role in Alfonso Cuaron’s latest science fiction project, Gravity.

The movie is a psychological drama following the struggles of a woman who is stranded on a space station after the rest of the crew have been killed by satellite debris. Think sci-fi version of Castaway with a female lead.

The movie will be shot in 3D and also co-stars Robert Downey Jr.
