Keanu Reeves is still attached to star in the project, which The Weinstein Company acquired in one of the biggest deals at the Cannes Film Festival back in May. Production was scheduled to start in Germany on April 7, under the direction of Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones), but the shooting schedule has been pushed back several weeks. CAA is now shopping the movie to domestic buyers, with Exclusive Media Group handing international sales.
The story follows a colonist (Keanu Reeves) travelling with 5,000 other passengers on a century-long journey to a new world. After he wakes up 90 years before he was supposed to, he awakens and falls in love with a female journalist, before realizing that the ship is malfunctioning, and they need to save everyone on board. Reese Witherspoon was initially attached to star before Rachel McAdams replaced her in October, but now the filmmakers are searching for a new female lead.
