Andy Dwyer, or as you may also know him, Chris Pratt, recently sat down with IGN to talk about his upcoming film, Guardians of the Galaxy. The project is the big screen film adaptation of the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is intended to be the tenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by James Gunn, with a story by Gunn and Nicole Perlman.
Pratt praised Gunn and his work on the film so far saying,
“I think we’re getting good stuff,” he says. “I don’t know what to say about it other than it might be — Oh! It’s the greatest movie of the 21st century! That’s what I’ll say. It’ll be the Citizen Kane of movies other than Citizen Kane.”
He also assured that fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would not be disappointed with next installment.
“What’s nice is that it is all the same universe, Because it falls under the Marvel umbrella, there is the possibility, just like in the comic books, that these stories could intersect… A lot of it’s just going to depend on what people think of the movie and if it makes sense for Marvel to keep making more of them. But I sure hope it does because I’ve never done anything like it. I hope they make ten of them.”
Guardians of the Galaxy, which also stars Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Djimon Honsou,Glenn Close and John C. Reilly, is set for release on August 1, 2014.
