Chris Pratt Eyes Starbuck Role


Chris Pratt is eyeing a role opposite Vince Vaughn in DreamWorks’ upcoming remake of the 2011 Canadian hit Starbuck, Variety reports.

The original film was directed by Ken Scott and written by Scott and Martin Petit and starred Patrick Huard as David Wozniak, an adult slacker who learns that, as a sperm donor with the alias “Starbuck,” he’s fathered over 500 children. When a large group of them petition the sperm bank to reveal his identity, David has to decide whether or not to come forward while, in his personal life, his own girlfriend makes a decision about whether or not he should be the father of their potential child.

Scott will write and direct the English-language remake which is targeted to film later this year.

Pratt, who will play David’s lawyer, is best known for his ongoing role on “Parks and Recreation” and appeared on the big screen earlier this year in The Five-Year Engagement.
