Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron & Rupert Wyatt Also In The MixSo yeah, we sort of forgot about this one, but Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot of "The Twilight Zone" off the ground for a while now. Way back in 2008 Rand Ravich ("The Astronaut's Wife") was hired to write the script, and then last fall rising scribe Jason Rothenberg was brought on board the project. And that's pretty much all we heard about it. Well, it looks like the studio is aiming for some big names to take the reins.

Filmmaker Also Says Cuaron Has Consulted James Cameron & David FincherWe're not going to recount the long journey Alfonso Cuarón has taken to get "Gravity" made, but needless to say after original lead actress Angelina Jolie bailed, the film seemed on the verge of collapsing before Sandra Bullock stepped in. The picture then looked like it might be dashed against the rocks when co-star Robert Downey Jr. had to exit the project to film “The Avengers,” but then George Clooney came aboard to rescue it in late 2010. Well, with the film now in production with a release date set for late next year, it's now a matter of seeing if the all the drama and waiting will be worth the hype, and according to Guillermo Del Toro, it will be.

Warner Bros. continues to get bold as it gets its Oscar dance cards in place. 2011 is filled with Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Now the studio is eyeing 2012, and surprisingly, has thrown a sci-fi genre picture into Academy contention.

Chris Weitz, Alfonso Cuaron Also Allegedly In The Running"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" might have made the much-mocked second and third Gore Verbinski-helmed entries in the series look like masterpieces in comparison, but audiences don't seem to care much -- especially internationally, moviegoers love them some Johnny Depp and it's already raked in a staggering $650 million in less than two weeks in release. Inevitably, this means that talk is turning to a fifth installment, a script for which has already been commissioned by Disney from Terry Rossio, who with partner Ted Elliott wrote all four installments to date.

Oh snap! Just when we had pretty much had given up on Alfonso Cuarón's sci-fi film "Gravity" -- Robert Downey Jr. had recently bailed on a small, but clutch supporting role -- one of the biggest stars in the world comes to the project's rescue.

Ugh. The writing has been on the wall for a while now -- Deadline first hinted at it late last month -- but now it's official: Robert Downey Jr. has left Alfonso Cuarón's forever gestating "Gravity." It appears that scheduling, long cited to be the issue, just couldn't be worked out and the actor has had to move on. Admittedly, the part was a small one -- he would've featured only in the first act -- but it was seemingly a tailor made role, that of a motor mouthed astronaut alongside the female lead who has to urgently navigate a ship back home.

Last we heard, Sandra Bullock had signed on to join Alfonso Cuaron's ailing sci-fi thriller "Gravity," but now doubts are being raised about whether or not long-attached co-star Robert Downey Jr., will stay on board the film.
