The potential leading ladies list is getting shorter as McAdams was due to replace Reese Witherspoon, another actress who has moved on from the role, according to the Hindustan Times on March 15.

The movie “Passengers” freezes folks in a suspended sleep for hundreds of years until the ship they are on lands on a new colony in a far off galaxy.

He wakes up the character McAdams was due to play after his fears of dying alone get the best of him.
