It's been a few months since word broke that Chris Pratt would star in a sci-fi thriller called Ghost Draft. Details were sparse, so we went wild with the speculation about spirits and wind. Now, though, we have a proper idea of what it'll be about, and that JK Simmons and Betty Gilpin are joining Pratt in the movie.

With The Lego Batman Movie's Chris McKay in the director's chair, is set in the future where humanity is in danger of losing a vicious war to a powerful alien race. In an attempt to turn the tide, scientists draft soldiers from the past to join the battle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simmons will be Pratt's father, though that has yet to be confirmed. Gilpin, whose casting was reported byVariety, is in talks for an unknown role.

The script has seen work by Zach Dean and Bill Dubuque, and filming is scheduled to kick off next month in Atlanta and Iceland.
