As we reported back in January, Keanu Reeves is teaming up with Pursuit of Happyness director Gabrielle Muccino for the sci-fi love story Passengers. Today, with the selling of rights over the film, new details have come to light. With a budget of $90 million, the producers are saying the film is like “Adam & Eve in Space.” Allow me to weave THR‘s synopsis with what we already knew: Set in the future on an interstellar spaceship, a mechanic (Reeves) accidentally awakens from pod hibernation 20 years into a 120-year journey and gets lonely and only has “robots and androids” for company. That is until he decides he doesn’t want to die alone and wakes up a female passenger.
Hit the jump for more details on the project and my slightly-less-than-positive reaction to them.
