Rachel McAdams and Keanu Reeves to Fall in Space-Love

Deadline reports that Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Keanu Reeves in Passengers. A science-fiction romance (which somehow has become McAdams's wheelhouse), it was written by Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts and will be directed by TV director Brian Kirk. The film tells the story of a spaceship tasked with taking thousands of humans to a distant planet. Because of an error, one man (Reeves) wakes up 90 years early. Not wanting to die alone, he wakes up a female (McAdams) and it's romantic and not selfish. Maybe (hopefully) they'll then fight aliens while holding hands.
