Amazon & Skydance in Talks for THE TOMORROW WAR 2 with Chris Pratt & Director Chris McKay Hopefully Returning!

By: John M Jerva

This weekend saw Amazon Prime’s new sci-fi action epic The Tomorrow War smash streaming records for the 4th of July weekend and now according to Deadline, Amazon and Skydance are in negotiations to bring us a follow up.

Per Anthony D’Alessandro @ Deadline: In response to this past weekend’s hugely successful global streaming debut of The Tomorrow War, Skydance and Amazon Studios are in discussions, I hear, on the development of a sequel to the Chris Pratt sci-fi pic.

I understand discussions are in place to bring the whole creative gang back both in front of and behind the camera including director Chris McKayand screenwriter Zach Dean; and stars Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons. Paramount is also involved in the sequel; the studio originally attached to distribute the first film theatrically.

As we all know, the film was picked up by Amazon from Skydance and Paramount Pictures for a whopping $200 million. The sci-fi thriller was originally supposed to be released in theaters last year but Paramount unloaded it due to the pandemic and now the streaming service is reaping the benefits of the gamble.

I watched the film this past week and consider it one of my favorites so far this year as it was bombastic, action dressed fun as hell. Check out my full review below!

In The Tomorrow War, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrives from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future, humanity is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Among those recruited is a high school teacher and family man Dan Forester. Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist and his estranged father in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.

While I normally would love a follow up to a film that I enjoyed, I kind of feel that it had a perfect ending. It will certainly be interesting to see how they do it. This is what happens in Hollywood when something is a hit.

The original film starred Chris Pratt, J.K. Simmons, Yvonne Strahovski, and Betty Gilpi, Sam Richardson, Theo Von, Jasmine Matthews, Keith Powers, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Edwin Hodge, Mike Mitchell, Seychelle Gabriel, Alan Trong, Chibuikem Uche, and Alexis Louder.

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more 411 to come as we are your destination for everything action!
