Chris Pratt, Wu Jing star in “Saigon Bodyguards”
(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) – Chris Pratt and “Wolf Warrior” franchise star Wu Jing are teaming up to star in the Joe and Anthony Russo-produced high octane action comedy “Saigon Bodyguards” at Universal Pictures.
A remake of Ken Ochiai’s Vietnamese film of the same name, the story focuses on two pals – one a straight arrow and the other a goofball – who try to find a corporate heir who got kidnapped right under their noses. Several twists ensue.
Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck (“What Men Want,” “Veep”) are writing the script and Pratt will produce alongside the Russos and Mike Larocca. The Russos worked with Pratt on two “Avengers” films and served as consultants on “Wolf Warriors 2” which remains the highest grossing non-English language film ever with $877 million in ticket sales.
