The “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star is on track to take on the role of a special forces soldier tasked with taking down a protected drug syndicate in “Fast.”
It appears likely that the writer behind “Sicario” and director of “Wind River” will team up with Chris Pratt in new project “Fast.”
“Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” franchise star Pratt is in talks over the role, per Variety, which reports that “Fast” has a black ops team put up against a drug-running operation.
Complicating matters is the fact that the drug dealers are already under the protection of the DEA.
As well as penning cross-border cartel takedown action movie “Sicario” and getting back into directing through 2017’s Wyoming murder investigation “Wind River,” Taylor Sheridan has been overseeing TV series “Yellowstone,” a considerable success for its network, Paramount.
After appearing in both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” in 2018, Pratt has “The Lego Movie 2” set for February 2019, with Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett face-off “The Kid,” a third “Jurassic World” movie, and action adventure “Cowboy Ninja Viking” lined up afterwards.
