Chris Pratt Picture

Chris Pratt has signed on to star in Amazon MGM Studios' upcoming sci-fi thriller "Mercy". The film will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov from a script by Marco van Belle ("Arthur & Merlin"). Bekmambetov previously worked with Pratt on the 2008 movie "Wanted", which was based on Mark Millar's comic book

The film is set in the near future when capital crime has increased, and it follows a detective (Pratt) who is accused of a violent crime and forced to prove his innocence.

The film is produced by Charles Roven, who just received his second Best Picture Oscar nomination for "Oppenheimer", under his Atlas Entertainment. Bekmambetov is also on board to produce through his production company BEL.

Here's what Amazon MGM Studios head Jennifer Salke had to say about the project: "From the moment Chuck Roven brought us Mercy and we read Marco van Belle’s script, we knew the film was meant for the big screen. As our relationship with The Terminal List and The Tomorrow War’s Chris Pratt continues to extend across film, we can’t wait to watch him bring this action-packed story to life, guided by Chuck and the vision of director Timur Bekmambetov. We could not imagine a better star and filmmaking team to execute on and deliver what is sure to be a gripping thrill ride and look forward to audiences being able to experience it in theaters.".
