The upcoming and highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy sequel has officially added Kurt Russell to the cast. The news was announced last week from a studio press release announcing the sequel’s start of production.
Unfortunately his role was not announced but we can hope that maybe, possibly, hopefully, Russell was cast as Star-Lord’s father. James Gunn had expressed interest last year in casting someone “prolific” in the role.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is currently filming in Atlanta and includes other new cast members such as Elizabeth Debicki and The Knick’s Chris Sullivan. The sequel is scheduled for release on May 5, 2017.
Returning cast members include Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan, with James Gunn back in the writer and director’s chair.
