Kurt to Lord over the Galaxy
Marvel may have found a dad for Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 after an approach was made to Kurt Russell to play the paternal part.
Russell (pictured, right), hot on the heels of a small-but-fun appearance in Fast & Furious 7, is Guardians’ director James Gunn’s top choice for the key role in his 2017 sequel.
Not getting on board with a followup, though, is Will Smith as his Captain Steve Hiller has been killed off on a viral tie-in website plugging next summer’s Independence Day: Resurgence.
