Since the third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is still in production limbo, Chris Pratt is now using his down time to take on a different character in Taylor Sheridan’s next film.
A new report by Variety states that Chris Pratt will be starring in a film by Oscar-nominee Taylor Sheridan. Currently titled as Fast, the film will feature Pratt as a former special ops commando. He gets recruited by the DEA and is hired to lead a team set to take down drug dealers. Unfortunately, these drug dealers are protected by the CIA.
The two Guardians films brought some of the most beloved characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a major feat, given that prior to the first film’s release, there had been six years of incredible storytelling around iconic Marvel characters like Iron Man and Captain America. James Gunn’s adaptation of Guardians was loved by fans worldwide.
Gunn was fired by Disney after a series of controversial old tweets by the director about rape and pedophilia surfaced on the internet. For now, it looks like the third Guardians of the Galaxy film won’t be coming anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see its actors in other roles.
