Scarlett Johansson To Escape Gravity’s Pull, Fly To Old St. Louis?

Which will you chose, Miss Johansson? A CG-heavy sci-fi picture from one of the best directors at work today… or a father/daughter drama from one of the best directors at work today?

Hardly Sophie’s Choice, is it?

As per previous reports, Ms. Johansson is the front runner to play the lead in Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, a picture that FX house Cinesite have described as “60% CG feature animation with the balance being hybrid CG and live action elements.” At the same time, Vulture have her “in talks” to join Old St. Louis, a David O. Russell picture in which Chloe Moretz is “lined up to play a traveling salesman’s estranged daughter – think Paper Moon or Matchstick Men without the con tricks – and Vince Vaughn will play her dad”.

Johansson’s role would be as “Vaughn’s paramour, a secretary who accompanies them on their cross-country sales jaunt.”

Choose, Johansson, choose. Or… you know, don’t. For all we know, scheduling could permit both.

That, however, could be very bad news for Blake Lively. According to The NY Daily News (the source that initially linked Scarlett to the role) Lively is actively pursuing the female in Gravity. Hmmm. Perhaps I’m starting to doubt both of their reports a little now…
