After the success of "Jurassic World" projects with the participation of Chris Pratt begin to "fly away" like hot cakes. According to The Wrap, the head of Sony Pictures Studio Tom Rothman gave the green light to the production of the fantastic movie "Passengers".
As expected, Pratt's salary has increased from $ 10 million to $ 12 million, and the female lead Jennifer Lawrence will indeed receive $ 20 million, plus a percentage of the profits if the movie is financially successful. Filming is expected to begin in September 2015. The production budget for the project will be cut from $ 150 million to $ 120 million thanks to tax incentives. Academy Award nominee Morten Tildum will be in the director's chair.
Recall that the action of the picture will take place on board a starship that has set off on a long journey, most of which the crew and passengers must spend in cryogenic sleep. In the story, one of those on board suddenly wakes up 90 years before the end of the flight. Unable to plunge into suspended animation again and realizing that 90 years alone is not the best fate, the hero wakes up one of the passengers.
The project has been in development since 2010. The movie was originally planned to be directed by Weinstein Company and Focus Features, with Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams as the title roles.
