Newswire: Kurt Russell in talks to play Star-Lord’s dad in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
In April, Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn revealed that the film’s sequel would be a “story about fathers,” presumably meaning that it will at least elaborate on the many references the original movie made to the parentage of Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill. The end of the first movie explained that his dad was a member of an unknown alien race, was “a jackass,” and was responsible for Quill being abducted as a child, but nothing else about his identity has been confirmed just yet. According to a report from The Wrap, though, we might be able to add that Quill’s father looks badass with an eyepatch to that list, because Kurt Russell is reportedly in talks to play him.
