If you’re going to have a revolving door or female actresses attached to a project, ending up with Jennifer Lawrence isn’t a bad thing. While Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams were previously attached, Lawrence is now in talks for the sci-fi romance, and to make the film a little more interesting, so is Chris Pratt, according to TheWrap.
Pratt is also replacing someone, as Keanu Reeves was attached for a long time.
Pratt will play one of thousands of people who set off on an 120-year interstellar voyage to a new planet. However he wakes up 90 years ahead of schedule, with only androids for company. In need of other human, he decides to wake up a female journalist named Aurora (Lawrence). They inevitably begin to fall in love, and also discover a malfunction on the ship that could threaten their lives.
Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Headhunters) recently came onboard to direct the movie, although it’s not clear when the film will shoot.
