Toronto: Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has reportedly replaced Angelina Jolie in new sci-fi movie "Gravity".

Jolie was originally offered the role as director Alfonso Cuaron`s leading lady in the upcoming 3D film, but she declined and now Johansson has "verbally agreed" to be a part of it, as reports suggest.

According to the report, Robert Downey Jr. is slated to appear alongside Johansson in what Cuaron is allegedly touting as "the most ambitious film, technology-wise, since `Avatar`".
