Gunn, Pratt Offer “Guardians” Sequel Update

James Gun has teased that though the sequel to last year’s hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” is still a good two years away, he’s progressing well on the film with the first draft of the film’s script now complete.

Gunn posted a photograph of the first page of the screenplay on his Twitter feed which you can see below and said it comes after “48 days straight without a day off”:

The surprise with the posting is the question over the title. Since its announcement, the project has been dubbed only “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” however today’s photo suggests it will ditch that idea in favour of a subtitle like most of the Marvel Studios sequels so far barring the “Iron Man” films.

It’s surprising one hasn’t been used as yet as all the subtitles for the other Marvel movies scheduled for release before 2019 have been set. Could they be saving it for Comic Con next month?

Shortly after, Chris Pratt spoke with Digital Spy and gushed over the script:

“I know some of the songs that are going to be on Awesome Mix 2. All I can tell you, because I obviously, I’m not allowed to tell anybody anything, nor would I want to, because it would be a little bit like telling a kid what’s under the tree before Christmas morning. I would encourage people not to poke holes in the paper and peek. Allow yourself the Christmas morning. Don’t ruin it.

I will say that his pitch and his idea legitimately put tears in my eyes. It is so good, it’s so good. And I cannot wait to get started on it and I cannot wait for people to see what he’s going to pull off with the second movie. It’s so, so big and so good.

From what I understand, they were like, heard it at Marvel and they said nothing. They’re like, ‘perfect.’ There was no micromanaging of the idea, they just love it so much they didn’t even have a note for it. It’s going to be remarkable.”
