Chris Pratt and Wu Jing To Star In Remake of Vietnamese Action-Comedy Saigon Bodyguards
The movie is executive produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, aka the guys who directed 'Avengers: Endgame'.
Chris Pratt and Wu Jing are reportedly set to star in a remake of Saigon Bodyguards.
The upcoming movie is based on the Vietnamese action comedy of the same name, which dropped in 2016 and focused on two bodyguards who accidentally let their most important asset slip away.
According to Deadline, Marvel star Pratt will reunite with Avengers directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo for the remake, as he appears alongside Chinese martial artist and Wolf Warrior actor Wu Jing.
Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck are co-writing the script, while Pratt will produce through his Indivisible Productions alongside Mike Larocca and the Russos through the AGBO production banner.
As well as Pratt himself, the sibling duo will also be reunited with Wu Jing after acting as consultants on Wolf Warriors 2.
For Universal, the studio's executive vide president of production Matt Reilly will oversee the upcoming flick, while AGBO will be represented by AGBO creative executive Kassee Whiting.
The original film was directed by Ken Ochiai from a script by Michael Thai, which was based on a story by the pair.

He said: "There are a lot of emotions. I'm not sure I can put it into words. It has been remarkable.
"Our crew and our cast has been so resilient. All producers have worked around the clock to make it the best it can be. It has been inspiring."— BANG
