Sci-Fi Pic 'Passengers' To Star Keanu Reeves, With Brian Kirk Directing

Game Of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire director Brian Kirk has just been set to helm Passengers in his major feature film debut. Wayfare Entertainment has come aboard to finance and produce the sci-fi pic that will star Keanu Reeves in a script by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts. The story follows a spacecraft transporting thousands of people to a distant colony planet that has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers. As a result, a single passenger (Reeves) is awakened 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he eventually decides to wake up a second passenger, marking the beginning of what becomes a unique love story. That second passenger, a female, has yet to be cast.

I really like him and he hasn't been doing enough movies lately. Maybe he will start making really good ones more often.

I've been waiting to see Keanu in a good movie ever since the Matrix.

I have been waiting on word of this script since forever. I loved it so much. The female arc is pretty intense. Some actress is going to get very lucky. And Keanu, why are you doing all this interesting stuff these days? You are too much man!

the plot details look interesting, im not sure on how they will execute it, it might be a straightforward sci fi flick with a lot of cinematography and mystery or are they going to concentrate on the love story? either way as long as keannu is involved i would watch it, i hope it will be his best film since the matrix came out.
