Keanu Reeves Boards "Passengers" 

Keanu Reeves is attached to star in "Passengers." It's being called "Adam & Even in Space," and Keanu will play the male lead. This is going to be a $90 million production and Universal will release the film domestically. Set designs will be created by the folks who gave us "Avatar."

Here's the film's logline from The Hollywood Reporter:

Set in the future, "Passengers" centers on Jim Preston (Reeves), a mechanic on a 120-year journey to a distant colonized planet in another galaxy, who becomes the first traveler to experience pod hibernation failure. Having woken up 100 years too soon, he is stranded in the world of an interstellar spaceship with only robots and androids for companionship.

A year into his journey, he decides to wake up a fellow passenger, a beautiful journalist named Aurora. They fall in love but must soon deal not only with the revelation of Jim's misjudged act of waking her but a major malfunction of the ship itself.

The original script was written by Jon Spaihts but the screenplay is now getting a polish. Production is set to begin in January.
