After the rights to the project were sold, the project found traction at Warner Bros. instead. The studio approached multiple actresses before casting Bullock in the female lead role. Robert Downey Jr. was also involved as the male lead before leaving the project and being replaced by Clooney.
Gravity received a wide release in the United States and Canada on October 4, 2013. The film has been given much praise for Emmanuel Lubezki's cinematography, as well as Bullock's and Clooney's performances.
