The actress, fresh off a much-publicized disorderly conduct charge, is in talks to star opposite Keanu Reeves in the film, which centers on a man aboard a spaceship who awakes from his cryogenic sleep a century before he is supposed to. After days of panic and loneliness he wakes up a female passenger that he has slowly become enamored with. If she joins the film, Witherspoon would play the love interest.
Reeves will produce with Stephen Hamel and Ben Browning.
Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for her performance in the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line”, can be seen in the acclaimed indie-drama “Mud” and can next be seen in the fact-based crime film “Devil’s Knot”.
She is repped by CAA.
