Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence

Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence have been attached to star in Passengers since early this year, but the film itself has been in development for quite some time. This film was written by Jon Spaiths (Prometheus) and will be helmed by Morten Tyldum (director of the Oscar-nominated film The Imitation Game).

Now after lengthy negotiations, Pratt and Lawrence have officially signed on to the film. But it won’t come cheap, as both of their contracts are in the eight figure range. The film won’t be cheap either as that will cost Sony up to $100 million plus. More on this story below.

Spider-Man

Sony is zeroing in on a director for their brand new Spider-Man reboot. When we last reported on the news, the studio’s shortlist consisted of Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50), Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent), and the team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (the Vacation reboot). That was just a few weeks ago, and now it appears that two of the directors are now in the running to helm the film.

A new report says that Levine and Melfi now top Sony’s shortlist of directors. It also says that the studio may settle on a new name that hasn’t appeared on the original shortlist. More on the story below.

Anne Hathaway

Steven Spielberg has an idea on whom he would like to see take the two lead roles in his long-gestating adaptation of Robopocalypse. It’s been reported that Spielberg would like to see Chris Hemsworth play the male lead in the upcoming film and now there is word that Spielberg is looking to Anne Hathaway to play the female lead. In addition to these possible castings, there is confirmation that former 20th Century Fox chairman and CEO Tom Rothman will be a producer for Robopocalypse.

According to Deadline, the studio is tightlipped about any news concerning the casting of lead roles in Robopocalypse. But the fact that Hathaway and Hemsworth could share the silver screen is an exciting thought. We will be likely to hear confirmation of the two being cast in the weeks leading up to the start of principle photography, which is scheduled to begin early 2013.
