Chris Pratt talks future Marvel movies, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters and more
If there's one thing you can count on Chris Pratt being, is that the dude is going to be upfront about whatever you ask him. In a recent interview with GQ, Pratt just laid it all out there and confirmed exactly what the hell is going on with multiple projects like GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2, INDIANA JONES and if the man is going to be GHOSTBUSTER. If anything, it's nice to see some confirmation that Star Lord is going to show up in other movies besides GUARDIANS. You check out the whole interview here, but we've pulled the highlights for you below.
Pratt on self doubt while playing Star-Lord and his advice from James Gunn:
I thought I was bad. I thought I was doing bad acting. I would just think: My bullshit meter's going off. This screams inauthentic to me. [James Gunn's] like, 'Who gives a shit what you think? I don't f*cking care! It's not your f*cking movie, dude, it's mine! Trust me and shut the f*ck up and do what the f*ck I tell you, and scream it! More! Louder!' I would get pissy because as an actor, you sometimes hate that direction: Louder, faster. But it's true—sometimes you have to be louder, speak more clearly, let the words do the work, and just get out of the way."
Pratt's first meeting with James Gunn for GOTG2:
I got teary-eyed. [Gunn's] so f*cking smart and peculiar.
Pratt's contract regarding Marvel films:
I'm tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians plus another couple...
If JURASSIC WORLD producer Steven Spielberg and him talked about the Indiana Jones rumors:
I just didn't bring it up and he didn't bring it up, so I don't know.
On whether or not there's any truth to being a part of GHOSTBUSTERS or KNIGHT RIDER:
No one has ever even spoken to me about [GHOSTBUSTERS]. Never. I've even seen Channing a couple times. As far as I know, that's complete bullshit. KNIGHT RIDER — bullshit.
I suppose it's only natural that after GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hit, made money and audiences loved him that his name would be attached to every other project under the sun. I'm rather interested to see if he can keep this streak going with JURASSIC WORLD, and prove that he can do more than Star Lord. I don't doubt it, mind you, but I think it's important to prove to those who haven't seen him in anything else. Either way, we'll always have Johnny Karate.
You can see Chris Pratt next in JURASSIC WORLD, which streets June 12, 2015.
