The Paramount film was formerly titled “Ghost Draft.” It follows a man (played by Pratt) who is drafted to fight a future war in which the fate of humanity may rely on his ability to correct issues of the past. Yvonne Strahovski, Betty Gilpin, J.K. Simmons and Mary Lynn Rajskub also star in the pic.
Chris McKay is directing from a script by Zach Dean.
David Ellison’s Skydance Media is financing. Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Jules Daly, David Goyer and Adam Kolbrenner are producing the project, while Rob Cowan serves as executive producer.
“The Tomorrow War” will face off against Universal’s historical drama “News of the World,” starring Tom Hanks.
Ellison’s company is best known for the “Mission: Impossible” and “Star Trek” movie franchises, and it recently opened “Terminator: Dark Fate” and “Gemini Man.” Its upcoming slate includes two more “Mission: Impossible” pics and “Top Gun: Maverick.”
Pratt became a worldwide star after headlining Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies as Star-Lord/Peter Quill and the “Jurassic World” films as dinosaur handler Owen. McKay made his feature directorial debut on “Lego Batman.”
