Dan Therriault has tweeted that he spoke with Stephen Hamel last night and the Passengers shoot will start in April.
Mr. Therriault is a screenwriter and playwright based in NYC.
Note: While Spaihts tweeted back in October that he thought it wouldn’t start until the end of Feb. or early Mar., I’m not surprised with the delay. The entire film is being shot on sound stages so all of the sets need to be built, etc. Ronin was slated to start in Jan. 2011 and the actual shoot didn’t get under way until the beginning of Mar. The Wick shoot was supposed to start in mid to late Sept. and didn’t start until Oct. Pre-production always seems to take longer than originally planned.
