Sony Pictures has begun work on the sci-fi drama Passengers , according to The Hollywood Reporter .|
Since 2013, the project has been developed by The Weinstein Co. Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon claimed the roles in the film, and his budget was estimated at $ 35 million . Last March, The Weinstein Co. unexpectedly relinquished “ Passengers ,” which was acquired by Sony nine months later. Earlier this year, Morten Tildum (The Imitation Game) was appointed director of the film, who offered the lead roles to Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. By that time, the preliminary budget for the film had exceeded the mark of $ 100 million .
Sony executives have urged the director to cut the budget for the project over the past few months, but the tremendous success at the Jurassic World box office has allowed the bosses of the film company to ensure that Pratt has become one of the the highest grossing actors in Hollywood.
Reportedly, Chris will be paid $ 12 million and Lawrence will be paid $ 20 million . Under certain conditions, Jennifer will also be able to receive up to 30% of the film's box office. The budget for " Passengers " has now stopped at $ 150 million .
Pratt will appear on the screen in the form of a spaceship passenger who wakes from cryogenic sleep while traveling to a distant planet. The main character finds out that there is still 90 years to fly to the destination, and therefore decides to wake up a beautiful girl ( Lawrence ).
Filming is expected to begin in September.
