August 11, 2010 - Gravity / Blake Lively also a candidate
Scooped on Wednesday, August 11, 2010
You can include Blake Lively as one of the two frontrunners to play the female lead role in Gravity. The news comes from Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog which lists the Gossip Girl's name along with Scarlett Johansson as the main candidates for the part. THR also states that Marion Cotillard auditioned for the part too, but she doesn't seem to be as wanted a candidate as the other two ladies by the filmmakers.
We also learn more about the female astronaut role. At the time the part was envisioned back when Angelina Jolie was hovering around it, the astronaut is the only survivor outside the space shuttle after debris collides with a Hubble repair crew. The character was also a mother and her desire to get safely back to Earth to be reunited with her daughter was her primary reason to try and survive. It's unclear whether the daughter story point would be dropped as both Lively and Johansson are both younger than Jolie and haven't played mother roles in their careers.
