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.
