The pic currently stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace and Michael Rooker with James Gunn set to direct. It was reported this past weekend that John C. Reilly was also in talks for some role in the pic.
Deadline Hollywood first reported this news.
It could not be confirmed what role Close would take on but reports have her playing a top level role at the universal space patrol, Nova Corp.
Close is repped by CAA and most recently wrapped finishing production on the indie “Lowdown.”
