Following the back-to-back successes of 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and 2015’s “Jurassic World,” Chris Pratt kept the gravy train going with 2016’s “Passengers.” A tale of botched hibernation, deception, and intergalactic codependence, the sci-fi film stars Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as two passengers on a spacecraft heading towards a distant colony planet. What fans may not know, however, is that the film almost starred Keanu Reeves.

The “Passengers” script was penned in 2007 by Jon Spaihts and picked up by Reeves, who planned on starring in and producing the film. In a Reddit AMA from 2013, Reeves wrote, “I’ve got a project that I’ve been developing for over six or seven years. It’s a role I am looking forward to playing, it’s called ‘Passengers.'” Unfortunately, Reeves’s version of the movie never came to fruition; the project jumped from Wayfare Entertainment to The Weinstein Company until it landed at Sony Pictures, at which point Pratt signed on to star (via Yahoo).

Nice guy that he is, Reeves had nothing but good things to say about the revamped “Passengers” when it was released in 2016. “Everyone worked so hard for so long,” the actor told Yahoo Movies. “I’m just happy that beautiful story got told by such wonderful people.” He also made sure to shout out his “Matrix” and “John Wick” co-star Laurence Fishburne, who had a supporting role in “Passengers.” “He did an amazing turn.”
