Actor Michael Sheen will join Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in the sci-fi adventure film “Passengers”. “The Masters of Sex” star will reportedly provide the voice of the robot who is travelling alongside Pratt and Lawrence, said the Hollywood Reporter.
“Passengers”, directed by Morten Tyldum of “The Imitation Game”, takes place in the future on a spacecraft with thousands of passengers aboard in cryogenic sleep heading to a new planet.
The love story reportedly takes place when, “one passenger awakens from crygenic sleep 90 years before anyone else and decides to wake up a female passenger”.
The film has been written by “Dr Strange” scribe Jon Spaihts, whose script was on 2007’s Black List for Hollywood’s most liked unproduced projects.
