Reese Witherspoon: 'Passengers' Star Opposite Keanu Reeves?

Reese Witherspoon is in talks to star in the upcoming sci-fi romantic drama called Passengers opposite Keanu Reeves, THR reports.

The 37-year-old actress, who has been in the media lately for her recent arrest for disorderly conduct, is just in the early stages of the deal, so nothing may come of it.

Here’s a synopsis: A starship transporting human cargo to a colony malfunctions, causing one passenger (Reeves) to prematurely thaw from a cryogenic slumber almost a century before anyone else. Not wanting to be alone, he decides to wake up another passenger, a female.

WOULD YOU LIKE to see Reese Witherspoon play opposite Keanu Reeves in Passengers???

    So, the plot is supposed to be that he chooses Reese. Just like This Means War and How Do You Know, she’s supposed to have that much of an appeal. Well, to be fair she would be silent at the time. Naw, still don’t buy it.

    Oh Boy her pr is trying to hype her as being so wanted as an actress so the media will stop writing about her arrest.

    Her mutt face will be great in sci fi. She is such a terrible actress and not even attractive. How she won an Academy Award is beyond my thinking. She needs to go away from Hollywood and to the hills in TN.

    No to Reese but yes to Keanu. They need a new face or an actress who is not big like Reese. Plus Reese and Keanu doesn’t seem like a good match on screen.

    I’ve read the script and Reese is totally and utterly wrong for this role.

    Dirk_Reese-Fan Says:

    Yes, I would like to see her in this role together with Keanu Reeves!
    It´s about time to play a role in a sci-fi-movie. That would be something fresh!
    And Reese and Keanu would play a brilliant couple!
    That love-atmosphere would get a high intensity,
    just like Neo & Trinity in the movie Matrix!
    Yep, Reese is the Chosen one for this role! GREAT IDEA!
    Call it the NTC, the Neo-Trinity-Complex! FANTASTIC!

    I love the concept of this movie and want to see Keanu in another Sci-Fi movie. I hope they start producing it soon. Like most other people, I am not that interested in Laura Poon but I guess she is A-list.

    Keanu….definitely….Reese no….she’s just not the right person for that part. Katie Holmes would be great and I would love to see her poke fun at Scientology in the movie. I am sure a few clever lines could be worked in. She and Keanu have the same ‘coloring’ and would look great together on screen.

    Keanu!!! Not sure if the on-screen chemistry would work with Reese though. Pick me! Pick me! I would loooooooooove to do a love scene with Keanu :)
