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 .

Set in the future, Passengers will star Reeves as a - what for it -  passenger on a trip to a distant planet. The journey lasts centuries and Reeves wakes up from his cryogenic sleep 90 years too soon.

Bored and rattling around a deserted spaceship, Reeves decides he needs some company, so he wakes up a beautiful woman, as you do.

Jon Spaihts, who was hired to write the script for Ridley Scott’s Untitled Alien Prequel , has penned the Passengers script.

Will you join Muccino onboard Passengers...?
