Still reeling from the box office success of Jurassic World, Chris Pratt has already signed on for more sequels of the dinosaur franchise, as well as a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. But it doesn’t stop there. Chris has been roped in to co-star with Hollywood leading lady Jennifer Lawrence in Sony’s Passengers, a romantic science-fiction film that will be set in space.
Sony originally had Reese Witherspoon, Rachel McAdams and Keanu Reeves in the roles. Morten Tyldum, who was nominated for best director at this year’s Oscars for The Imitation Game is set to direct the film.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lawrence, 24 will earn an exceptional $20 million against 30 per cent of the profit even after the film breaks into theaters. Passengers, described as “Titanic meets Gravity,” will start filming in September. –Maria-Josee Martinez
