The Long and Troubled History of This Film
Once upon a time, there was a script called Shadow 19, an original sci-fi/action-thriller screenplay written by Jon Spaihts. The project was picked up by Warner Bros. with Keanu Reeves set to star. However, for whatever reason, the film ended up not happening. Reeves, however, liked Spaihts' script so much that when he read his script for Passengers, he not only wanted to star in the film as Jim Preston but also produce it. Brian Kirk was originally attached to direct and the film had a budget of around $35 million. Emily Blunt and Reese Witherspoon were both attached to play Aurora Dunn at different points in time. Then, the film entered development hell for a very long time, less than a decade to be specific, until Sony won an auction to pick up rights to the film in 2014. Reeves was still onboard as a producer through his production company, Company Films, but he was uncredited. Fast & Furious' Neal H. Moritz also came onboard as producer, Morten Tyldum was hired to replace Kirk as director, Lawrence & Pratt were cast, and Passengers was finally made.
Everything is terrible.
