Chris Pratt’s The Tomorrow War sets release date for 2020
As production continues for The Tomorrow War, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Paramount Pictures has officially set the release date for director Chris McKay’s upcoming sci-fi thriller film. Featuring MCU star Chris Pratt, the film will be making its debut in theaters next year on Christmas Day.
As of now, the December 25, 2020 release date will see The Tomorrow War going up against only one competitor which is director Paul Greengrass’ drama film News of the World starring Oscar winner Tom Hanks.
In The Tomorrow War (formerly titled as Ghost Draft), when humanity is losing to an alien invasion, scientists develop a way in order to fight the invasion by creating a way to draft soldiers from the past to fight the war. The film will follow a man drafted to fight in a future war where the fate of humanity relies on his ability to confront his past.
The film will star Christ Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World), and Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) along with Emmy nominees Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale), Betty Gilpin (GLOW). It will also feature Sam Richardson, Theo Von, Jasmine Matthews, Keith Powers, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Edwin Hodge, Mike Mitchell, Seychelle Gabriel (Falling Skies), Alan Trong (Alita: Battle Angel), newcomer Chibuikem Uche and Alexis Louder (Focus Features’ Harriet).
The film will be directed by Emmy winner Chris McKay (Robot Chicken, The Lego Batman Movie) from a script written by Zach Dean (Deadfall, 24 Hours to Live). It is executive produced by Pratt with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, David S. Goyer, Jules Daly, and Adam Kolbrenner set as producers. Matt Grimm will oversee for Skydance. Skydance is financing the project with Paramount on board to distribute
