Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt Circle 'Passengers'

After moving around Hollywood, the sci-fi love story Passengers is ready to cast its stars, and the film is aiming high.

According to Variety, The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is up for the female lead. Meanwhile, TheWrap reports Chris Pratt is in early talks for the male role.

Directed by The Imitation Game's Morten Tyldum, Passengers focuses on a male space traveler who wakes up from cryo-sleep 90 years early and decides to rouse a fellow female traveler to keep him company. Prometheus and Doctor Strange writer Jon Spaihts penned the script before he landed the Marvel gig.

The film has bounced from The Weinstein Company to Focus Features before ending up at Sony Pictures in December. Along its tour of the studios, such actors as Keanu Reeves, Rachel McAdams and Reese Witherspoon were attached.
