[Movies] Passengers Experiences Production Delay: Loses Female Lead, Release Date And Distribution
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.14.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keanu Reeves' sci-fi romance film Passengers has just suffered a huge setback. In addition to losing its female lead Rachel McAdams (who was a replacement for Reese Witherspoon), the film has also lost its release date of April 3, 2015 and its distribution studio The Weinstein Company.

The Weinsteins acquired the US rights at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Wayfare Films is financing and producing with Company Films (run by Reeves and Stephen Hamel). The Weinstein Company has pulled the movie from its release calendar and is said to be gone completely because of the production delay that resulted from McAdams leaving. CAA, which is handling the domestic rights, will now look for another distributor. Executive Media is handling international rights.

Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire) was set to start shooting in Germany on April 7, but now the start date has been pushed back by several weeks or more.

The film stars Reeves as a colonist on a spaceship carrying 5,000 sleeping passengers to a new world. After he accidentally wakes up and gets lonely, he wakes up Aurora and they fall in love. They soon realize they have to save everyone else on the trip.

This is the latest problem for Reeves after his Universal film 47 Ronin became a huge box office flop. It cost $175 million to produce and only made $146 million worldwide.
