Yesterday we learned that writer and director James Gunn completed the first draft of his script for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2. When Chris Pratt learned what the story of the sequel entails, he got very emotional.
When the soundtrack for the upcoming film was brought up in an interview with Digital Spy, the actor talked about Gunn’s story ideas and admits that they caused tears to well. Here’s what he said:
"We've talked a little. I know some of the songs that are going to be on Awesome Mix Vol 2. All I can tell you because - obviously, I'm not allowed to say anything, nor would I want to because it would be 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'. What I will say is that [Gunn's] pitch and his ideas legitimately put tears in my eyes. It is so good, it's so good. I can not wait to get started on it and I can not wait for people to see what he's going to pull off with this second movie. It's so big and so good. From what I understand, Marvel [heard Gunn's pitch] and they said nothing. [It] was that perfect. There was no micromanaging of the idea. They just love it so much they didn't have any notes for it. It's going to be remarkable."
We’ve got a long way to go before we find out what exactly Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be about, but I can’t wait to see where Gunn takes these characters next.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to open in theaters on May 5th, 2017.
