News is out that Rachel McAdams has bailed on the movie "Passengers." On March 14, E! Online confirmed that she will no longer be doing the movie with Keanu Reeves. She was supposed to be the female lead in this movie so they can't go on until they find someone to replace her in the flick.

Reese Witherspoon was supposed to do the role, then it went to McAdams, and now they are looking for a lead all over again. It is unknown why they are all dropping out of it. This movie is all about two space travelers who end up falling in love.

The plan was for "Passengers" to start filming on April 7. Now that that Rachel McAdams has dropped out it might be hard to find a new female lead that fast. It will be interesting to see who they end up getting and how long it takes to find someone to take her spot on the movie.
