Chris Pratt revealed his upcoming sci-film, formerly titled Ghost Draft, now has a new name—and there were hilarious contenders that didn’t make the cut.
Posting on his Instagram, the Avengers: Endgame actor shared the new title for the film, The Tomorrow War and mentions why the original title was altered. The actor also ran through other possible titles for the futuristic wartime thriller. Some of them are more on the humorous side but others, like ‘World War A’, have a nice ring to it. Check out Pratt’s post below.
Clearly, many of the names listed are jokes, but a few seem to line up with both the original title and the new one, so they could have been actual contenders. Either way, The Tomorrow War will likely prove more evocative for audiences than Ghost Draft.
The Tomorrow War is slated to be released by Paramount Pictures, with filming taking place in Iceland and Atlanta. Chris McKay, the director of The Lego Batman Movie, will helm the thriller. McKay is also attached to an upcoming film about Nightwing. Given Pratt’s built-in fanbase, and given the talent involved, The Tomorrow War is sure to generate more buzz in the run-up to its theatrical debut.
The logline for the film, along with the potential names and first image, teases a homegrown push-back against alien invaders, as well as some time travel action: “A husband and father is drafted to fight a future war in which the fate of humanity may rely on his ability to correct issues of the past.”
