Patrick Wilson will play the male lead in the supernatural thriller Passengers, being produced and financed by Mandate Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Anne Hathaway already has boarded the Rodrigo Garcia-directed film, which Columbia Pictures will release domestically.
Written by Ronnie Christensen, Passengers centers on a grief counselor (Hathaway) who helps six plane crash survivors and develops a special connection with one of them. When the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, she suspects a conspiracy and becomes determined to uncover the truth.
Wilson (Little Children) will play Eric, the survivor who becomes romantically involved with Hathaway’s character.
