As rumored, Robert Downey Jr. has officially exited the Alfonso Cuaron-directed space survival thriller Gravity. Heat Vision | THR reports that the actor is now circling on Fox’s How to Talk to Girls:
Sources say that actor is circling the project, an adaptation of a book by a nine-year old boy revolving around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex. Downey, along with wife and producing partner Susan Downey, would also come aboard as a producer, joining Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps banner.
Heat Vision cautions that no deals have been made and Downey is only eying the project. Meanwhile on the Gravity front, Sandra Bullock is still in negotiations to star in the film. The character RDJ was to play was only going to appear in the first act. Warner Brothers will likely recast the role.
