Chris Pratt is apparently in talks to star with Jennifer Lawrence in space-set love story Passengers.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy star is reported to be eyeing a role in the film which has long been in development, being considered as a future project by the Weinstein Company and Focus Features before landing at Sony.

But according to The Wrap, it is still up in the air whether Jennifer will definitely be able to sign up to Passengers, as her busy work schedule could hold her back.

Passengers is about a man aboard a spaceship who wakes up early from a cryogenic sleep and decides to wake up a female passenger to keep him company.

It will be directed by The Imitation Game's Morten Tyldum, and was penned by Prometheus and Doctor Strange writer Jon Spaihts.

Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams had previously been considering the role Jennifer is lined up for and Keanu Reeves had been attached as the male lead.
