Studio Wanted Romance in Sandra Bullock's Hit Gravity

The director of Gravity Alfonso Cuaron has now revealed the pressure he was under to change the story of his space walk from a thriller to a romance. The studio had specific ideas for the story line but the director stood strong and kept with the tone of the movie that became a billion dollar hit.

The $80million budget Gravity has been praised for its simplicity in its story of two astronauts stranded in high earth orbit after the spacecraft they are on is hit with debris. The director however, says "With making a film it's like trying to create a tune in the shower while you have a hundred people singing around you. You have to focus yourself in on the tune that you are trying to create. Because you have hundreds of people singing different songs at the same time around you." One of the problems Cuaron ran into was them wanting constant cutting to Mission Control in Houston reports theguardian .

Another request was for the story to include flashbacks to a love story between Bullocks character and a mission control officer that the director just was not feeling. At one point Cuaron says studio nervousness got to the point where one executive asked him to "pump up the action value, like an enemy or missile strike. They also wanted a huge helicopter rescue at the end that the director felt would take away from the simplicity of the story line. All in all the director turned out to be right and the movie was a huge hit but what a different movie it sounds like it could have been. I for one like it just the way it is.
