quietearth [Celluloid 04.07.09] movie news scifi romance



Ok, so we're a little late on this one and I don't know how I missed it as the news dropped Sunday, but it's definitely worth posting. We all may have mixed feelings about Keanu, but one things for sure, the films he does have awesome storylines and production design so I can definitely dig this one. Production company Morgan Creek is supposedly fast tracking this project and it's near a "greenlight", so let's hope we see more soon. Here's the plot:

Passengers takes place in the future, as a spacecraft is transporting people to colonize a distant planet. Because of a malfunction, a single passenger (Reeves) is awakened 90 years before anyone else. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he awakens a beautiful woman.


Yeah I know, romantic. First she says "thanks d*ck" and then kicks his butt.

We'll keep an eye on this one. via Variety

There is of course the added proble that if the ship goes below 55 (Light years), it will blow up :)
