|George Clooney previously ventured into space drama for "Solaris."|
Clooney told USA Today:
"‘Gravity’ is about two astronauts who work on a space station. A satellite blows up, and space junk causes damage. We go out in space suits, and she and I are tethered together, floating through space. It’s a two-hander with only two actors in the whole film. It is a very odd film, really. Two people in space. No monsters. It’s more like ’2001′ than an action film.”The "she" in that quote is Sandra Bullock.
"Sandy is the lead," Clooney said. "And she is beautiful in it. We have known each for way over 20 years. It's fun to work with her."
Directing is Alfonso Cuarón. With "Children of Men" and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" on his resume, "Gravity" comes with great promise.
It's also in 3-D, but don't count on seeing Clooney in another 3-D film anytime soon. “It is the first time I’ve been in 3-D and, hopefully, the last time.” he told USA Today.
The film is at least a year away from reaching theaters.
