And the actress playing his love-interest will complete this hearts and stars flick.
Chris Pratt has it really going on. After two box-office successes on science fiction flicks, another movie in the genre is coming with a twist. Maybe we should call him the king of Sci-fi films.
Sony offered him to be in ‘Passengers’, a movie that is in the line of Alfonso Cuarón‘s ‘Gravity’ with romance. Pratt will play a man who wakes up from his cryogenic sleep before the spaceship he is on reaches it’s destination. In the process, he wakes up his companion, a woman, so that she wouldn’t die.
And the actress playing the woman will be no other than Jennifer Lawrence herself.
Unlike most movies today, ‘Passengers’ isn’t based on any comic book or a reboot of a classic but rather an original that has took a long time to be greenlit until now.
Previous stars that was attached to the script were stars Keanu Reeves, Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams. Formerly, the budget was light but Sony decided to invest much when hiring Pratt and Lawrence.
