Reese Witherspoon and Keanu Reeves? That should be interesting! We’ve just learned that Witherspoon is in some serious negotiations to join previously announced Reeves in the upcoming sci-fi romance movie titled Passengers. The whole thing comes from Game of Thrones helmer Brian Kirk and definitely sounds promising. Head inside to read why…
Kirk will direct the movie from a script written by Jon Spaihts which revolves around Reeves’ character – a mechanic named Jim Preston who’s on a 120-year journey to a distant colonized planet in another galaxy.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Having woken up 100 years too soon, he is stranded in the world of an interstellar spaceship with only robots and androids for companionship. A year into his journey, he decides to wake up a fellow passenger, a beautiful journalist named Aurora. They fall in love but must soon deal not only with the revelation of Jim’s misjudged act of waking her but a major malfunction of the ship itself.
As we said at the beginning of this report, Reese Witherspoon is in some serious talks to come on board and play the female lead in the whole thing.
Let us just add that talks are still in the early stages, but we have nothing against this love story.
However, Reeves is attached to produce the movie with Stephen Hamel and Ben Browning, while Michael Maher is exec producing the project.
