Chris Pratt and Wu Jing, the star of the massive Chinese box office hit Wolf Warrior, will star in an English language remake of action-comedy Saigon Bodyguards for Universal.
The original 2016 film centered on two professional bodyguards who let their most important asset slip away. Pratt will produce through his Indivisible Productions alongside Anthony and Joe Russo, and Mike Larocca, who will produce through their Agbo production banner.
Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck are writing the script. Pratt will produce through his Indivisible Productions alongside Joe and Anthony Russo and Mike Larocca, who will produce through their Agbo production banner.
The film reunites the Russos with both Pratt, who brought his Guardians of the Galaxy to their Avengers films, and with Wu Jing. The Russos were consultants on Wolf Warriors 2, which is the highest-grossing film ever in China with $877 million in ticket sales there. In fact it’s the highest-grossing non-English-language film ever.
