After a long time and a few not-so-popular roles, we will see Chris Pratt in the lead role of an upcoming SciFi movie. His last significant achievement was Avengers: Endgame. After that, he voiced the lead character of Emmet in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part and starred in the western The Kid.
The new movie was announced to be shot over a year ago and has been formerly titled ”Ghost Draft”. However, the name of the film was recently retitled to “The Tomorrow War.”
What is known about this SciFi thriller is that the film is set in a future where humanity is fighting an alien invasion. However, fighting with aliens is not going well for humankind. The chances of winning are meager, so people are desperate to find a way to save humanity. People from the future come up with the idea of recruiting soldiers from the past to help combat aliens. The story follows a man (Chris Pratt) recruited for a future war in which the fate of humankind may depend on his ability to correct events of the past.
The Tomorrow War is directed by Chris McKay based on a script written by Zach Dean.
The movie is produced by David Ellison, Don Granger, Dana Goldberg, David S. Goyer, Jules Daly, and Adam Kolbrenner with Skydance financing and Paramount Pictures distributing.
The movie, alongside Chris Pratt, will feature J.K. Simmons, Yvonne Strahovski, Sam Richardson, Betty Gilpin, Mary Lyn Rajskub, Theo Von, and Keith Powers. There are also Jasmine Matthews, Edwin Hodge, Seychelle Gabriel, Mike Mitchell, Alan Strong, Alexis Louder, and Chibuikem Uche.
On the whole, this is a very ambitious project, and we have to wait for the movie to be released and see if this will be a successful film as it is announced.
The movie was announced for December 25, 2020.
