‘The Tomorrow War’ First Look: Chris Pratt Leads A Team Of Time-Traveling Soldiers

Chris Pratt isn’t hurting for new franchises or anything, but earlier this year he signed on for what could be a new one in Ghost Draft. The live-action sci-fi film will be directed by Chris McKay, director of The Lego Batman Movie, and features a very cool Edge of Tomorrow-esque premise involving an alien invasion. While I really dug that title, it now has a new one, The Tomorrow War, with a first look at Pratt alongside his battle-hardened cast.

Production is underway on The Tomorrow War, and Pratt has dropped the first image of him looking like he’s ready to take on any extraterrestrial threat. The story finds humanity making a last ditch effort to save themselves from alien invasion by reaching back into the past and enlisting soldiers from different eras to fight the war. Pratt plays a man who is drafted to fight in a future war where humanity’s fate depends on him confronting his past.

Pretty cool, right? You can get warriors from different eras with different personalities, styles, weaponry, etc. I love it.

Pratt is joined in the star-studded ensemble by J.K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin (GLOW), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Sam Richardson (Good Boys), Mary Lyn Rajskub (24) Theo Von, Jasmine Matthews, Keith Powers, Edwin Hodge, Mike Mitchell, Seychelle Gabriel, Alan Strong, Alexis Louder and Chibuikem Uche.

The script is by Deadfall writer Zach Dean with Pratt as a first-time exec-producer. You can read his excitement about that in the image’s caption.
