A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.
A who’s who of actresses were attached or considered for this leading role. Angelina Jolie was set to star — on two separate occasions — and then it was Natalie Portman’s next big project in the post-Black Swan/pre-pregnancy days. Ultimately, it will serve as Sandra Bullock’s first science fiction role, and her fanbase should swell even more under the direction of treasured director Alfonso Cuarón, who somehow hasn’t directed a project since the absolutely perfect Children of Men. It’s been widely noted that Clooney’s screen time will be minimal, but pivotal (clearly).
