Star-Lord will return to Earth! Actor Chris Pratt has signed on to star in – and executive produce The Terminal List – for MRC. The series is based on the bestselling Jack Carr novels of the same name. The Terminal List is an action-packed conspiracy trilogy that is ripe for adaptation. The series will see Pratt reunite with director Antoine Fuqua. The two previously worked together on the 2016 film The Magnificent Seven.

The Terminal List Is A More Serious Action Role For Chris Pratt

The official press release describes The Terminal List as “a conspiracy thriller that combines elevated action with deep psychological questions about the cost of pushing our nation’s highest trained operators too far.  The series follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission.  Reece returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him.

This will be the first time that Chris Pratt returns to the silver screen since the end of Parks & Recreation in 2015, the comedy that launched the Marvel actor’s career. Although Pratt’s roots are in comedy, he has since made a name for himself as an action star. Other than starring in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, Pratt has also appeared in the recent Jurassic World films. However, The Terminal List looks like it will be a far more serious drama than any of Pratt’s previous work.

The Terminal List is still being shopped around to networks, and has not yet been picked up. Does Pratt’s return to the small screen indicate a shift in his career towards drama? He is still signed on for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, along with the next Jurassic World film. He is currently filming another sci-fi film called The Tomorrow War. It looks like Pratt is still firmly committed to remaining a genre star. It will be interesting to see him take on a more dramatic action role however, in The Terminal List.
