Anne Hathaway is certainly trying to cram as many genres as possible into her career, and she’s about to take a stab at a spooky thriller.
Sony is developing Passengers, which has a grief counsellor (Hathaway) helping six plane crash survivors. She develops a special connection with one of them (we’re guessing romantic, but you never know what they’ve got in store) but is drawn into a possible conspiracy when the other survivors start to vanish mysteriously. So what do you think she does? No, not run away and refuse to get involved… she investigates.
Ronnie Christensen has penned the script and Nine Lives’ Rodrigo García; will be swinging the megaphone early next year.
