Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Pratt Might Be "Passengers"

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt may team up to star in the science fiction film Passengers says  The Wrap.

The story follows Jim Preston, a mechanic on a 120-year journey to a distant colonized planet in another galaxy, who becomes the first of the 5,000 travellers to experience pod hibernation failure. Awake a century too soon, he is stranded in the world of an interstellar spaceship with only robots for companionship. A year on his loneliness causes him to awaken a beautiful journalist named Aurora and they fall in love.

 The truth of her revival, and a major malfunction on the ship, are also key plot points.

One tine "Prometheus" scripter Jon Spaihts wrote this original script from which The Imitation Game helmer Morten Tyldum will call action.

Neal Moritz, Ori Marmur, Stephen Hamel and Michael Maher will produce.

Lawerence's involvement is iffy due to her busy schedule.

The film was setup several years ago with Game of Thrones episode director Brian Kirk set to make his feature film directorial debut--Keanu Reeves Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams were poised to star along the way.
