We hear Scarlett Johansson has been tapped to replace Salt starlet Angelina Jolie in Gravity, a new science-fiction feature that will feature Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr.

Jolie was originally offered the role as director Alfonso Cuaron’s leading lady in the upcoming 3D film, but she declined. Now Golden Globe-nominated, Tony-winning Johansson has “verbally agreed” to be a part of it what Cuaron is allegedly touting as “the most ambitious film, technology-wise, since Avatar.”

Gravity is expected in theaters next year.
