Hollywood actor Chris Pratt and Chinese martial artist actor Wu Jing will collaborate on the film remake of “Saigon Bodyguards.”
According to Variety, Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck (“What Men Want,” “Veep”) are writing the script. Pratt previously worked with the Russo brothers on Marvel’s “Avengers” films. AGBO and the Russo brothers last worked with Wu when they consulted on his 2017 pic “Wolf Warrior 2,” one of the highest-grossing non-English films of all time.
The original 2016 film centered on two professional bodyguards who let their most important asset slip away.
The film is produced by Indivisible Productions in partnership with Joe Russo and Mike Larocca who will produce through their AGBO production banner.
Pratt, 30, is widely-known for his role in “Jurassic World” franchise as well as his role within Marvel’s cinematic universe. Wu Jing is known for directing while also playing the lead role in “Wolf Warrior.”
