Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt Lead 'Passengers' Cast

(Radio.com) Sony Studios is moving forward with Passengers, a big-budget science-fiction drama starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. But getting the production off the ground was not without its own drama, says the Hollywood Reporter.

The film bounced between studios before landing at Sony. Tom Rothman, Chairman of Sony's motion picture division, is said to have wrestled with the film's budget. And with Chris Pratt's price tag having just gone up $2 million this weekend with the success of Jurassic World, Pratt's take is now at $12 million per picture, reports THR.

Add Pratt's pay to co-star Lawrence's $20 million salary, plus hefty back-end profit sharing, and the film could end up running somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 million. Read more here.
