Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt In Talks For Sci-Fi Romance PASSENGERS

CBM faves Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) are said to be in early talks to play the leads in a new science fiction flick from The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum. Click on for more details...


You may have heard of Jon Spaihts' (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) script for Passengers, as it's been on the Black List for quite a while, and at one time had Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams lined up for the lead roles. That version of the movie never went anywhere, but now Variety are reporting that subsequent to Sony purchasing the rights late last year, the project has a new director in Morten Tyldum, and two of the biggest actors in the world right now in early talks to star.

Chris Pratt would play one of thousands of passengers aboard a spacecraft heading for a new home planet in a distant galaxy who wakes from cryo-sleep 90 years before he's supposed to, and decides to wake another passenger to keep him company. That, of course, is Jennifer Lawrence's character. She obviously isn't too pissed about it though, as this is said to spark the "beginning of a love story".

Sounds like an interesting premise, but both Lawrence and Pratt have very full plates right now so there's a chance one or both might have to pass this one up. The film will be produced by Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur through Moritz’s Original Film banner along with Michael Maher for Start Media and Stephen Hamel of Company Films.
