Chris Pratt Eyes Action Film from Taylor Sheridan

Joseph Baxter Oct 25, 2018

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold, Chris Pratt is in talks to star in an action thriller from writer/director Taylor Sheridan.

Chris Pratt may not be hard up for headlining roles, but the drama that saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 lose director James Gunn, only to be subsequently delayed, has left another major vacancy in his blockbuster backlog after another one of his movies, Cowboy Ninja Viking, was delayed indefinitely this past summer. Consequently, Pratt is looking at a role that would see him embrace his action aptitudes in a grittier context than we’re used to seeing.

Talks have begun for Pratt to star in a Warner Bros. action film, tentatively titled Fast, reports Variety. The film is written by Taylor Sheridan, who’s also set to direct, joined by veteran producer David Heyman. The plot of the film is touting interagency conflict,

Though many want to see George Miller continue his adventures in the world of Mad Max, the director has always been one to divert from expectations and he’ll be doing just that with his newly-announced next project, Three Thousand Years Of Longing. Set to begin production next year, there’s no plot or casting to be revealed, but as one can glean from the title, it’s said to be entirely new territory for the director and “epic in scope,” Deadline reports. Update: THR reports that Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton will star in the film (also going by Djinn), which involves a love story and a genie.

We should be getting the first look at Richard Linklater’s Cate Blanchett-led Where’d You Go Bernadette any day now, but first the director has announced a new project. He’ll be writing and directing a film on the
