Director boarding Reeve's Passengers

Gabriele Muccino is in talks to direct Keanu Reeves’s sci-fi romance Passengers , described by the Italian director as a love story set on a spaceship.

Muccino announced the news at the press conference for his first Italian language film in seven years, Kiss Me Again , the sequel to 2001's The Last Kiss .

Despite Muccino's continental credentials, the director is best known for his recent success in Hollywood.

In 2006, Muccino teamed up with Will Smith for The Pursuit of Happyness , and in 2008 the pair reunited for Seven Pounds .
