Reese Witherspoon is in talks to join Keanu Reeves in the science fiction romance Passengers, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in the future, Passengers centers on Jim Preston (Reeves), a mechanic on a 120-year journey to a distant colonized planet in another galaxy, who becomes the first traveler to experience pod hibernation failure. Having woken up 100 years too soon, he is stranded in the world of an interstellar spaceship with only robots and androids for companionship. A year into his journey, he decides to wake up a fellow passenger, a beautiful journalist named Aurora (Witherspoon). They fall in love but must soon deal not only with the revelation of Jim's misjudged act of waking her but a major malfunction of the ship itself.

Witherspoon can be seen on the big screen now in writer-director Jeff Nichols' Mud.

Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts provided the most recent draft of the screenplay. Ben Browning and Stephen Hamel are attached to produce with Michael Maher executive producing.
