Chris Pratt to lead "Lego Batman" director's sci-fi feature
Writer: Florey DM
Chris Pratt is in discussion to lead Chris McKay's upcoming sci-fi feature.
15 Feb - Both Chris Pratt and Chris McKay are part of the "Lego" movie franchise and yet they haven't really worked together on a project, until now.
Pratt is in talks to star in McKay's sci-fi movie, "Ghost Draft", according to The Hollywood Reporter.
There are no details on his role since not much is known about the movie at the moment, except that it is live-action and written by Zach Dean ("24 Hours to Live", "Voyagers").
The movie is expected to begin filming this summer.
Aside from "Ghost Draft", Pratt is also set to star in "Jurassic World 3" and the sequel to 2017's "Wind River".
No word yet on whether he will still be reprising his role as Star-Lord for "Guardians of the Galaxy 3", as the movie is currently postponed following the firing of director James Gunn (who has, of course, moved on to DC's "Suicide Squad" sequel).
He will be seen as Star-Lord again though in this year's "Avengers: Endgame".
For now, Pratt can be heard lending his voice to a couple of characters in "The Lego Movie 2: the Second Part", which McKay executive produced. McKay also produced "The Lego Ninjago Movie", directed "The Lego Batman Movie", and animated and edited 2014's "The Lego Movie", which Pratt also voice starred in.
