Witherspoon Joins Reeves In “Passengers”

Reese Witherspoon is in talks to join the Jon Spaihts-penned sci-fi romance drama “Passengers” at Wayfare Entertainment.

Keanu Reeves plays a mechanic on a starship transporting colonists to their new home when he is awoken by his pod’s hibernation failure – a century before he’s supposed to awaken.

A year on, he wakes up a fellow passenger (Witherspoon) for company. They fall in love, but he must soon deal with the outcome of his actions.

Reeves, Stephen Hamel and Ben Browning are producing with filming to take place in Montreal.
