Chris Pratt’s upcoming sci-fi action movie The Tomorrow War has set its release date.
According to Variety, the film will be released on Christmas Day 2020. Originally titled Ghost Draft, it will tell the story of a man who is drafted into a futuristic war, the outcome of which -- and the future of humanity -- seemingly relies on his ability to correct issues made in the past.
The Tomorrow War is written by Zach Dean and will be directed by Chris McKay, who previously helmed The LEGO Batman Movie. The movie is being financed by David Ellison’s Skydance Media, and Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Jules Daly, David Goyer and Adam Kolbrenner are producing the movie with Skydance. Rob Cowan is also attached as executive producer.
If The Tomorrow War is successful, it could potentially develop into an additional tentpole franchise for Pratt. Already familiar with sci-fi through his work on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Passengers, Pratt also stars in the popular Jurassic World series.
Directed by Chris McKay, The Tomorrow War stars Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, Betty Gilpin, J.K. Simmons and Mary Lynn Rajskub. The film arrives in theaters Dec. 25, 2020.
