  • Chris Pratt, Antoine Fuqua Team for Thriller Series ‘Terminal List’ at MRC Television

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Antoine Fuqua's Fuqua Films and MRC Television is now in the process of developing a series adaptation of author Jack Carr's bestselling action thriller novel titled The Terminal List with Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt attached to lead the potential series. But, Reece comes back with conflicting memories of what truly happened on that fateful day, and serious questions about the part he played in the deaths of his men. As he returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about culpability, new evidence comes to light as Reece discovers dark forces working against him.

Pratt and Fuqua, reuniting after their underwhelming 2016 adaptation of the classic western The Magnificent Seven, teamed up to bring this project to development/production company MRC (Media Rights Capital), and the series is still searching for a home. Most recently, he was the executive producer and showrunner for CBS All Access' "Strange Angel" created by Mark Heyman and executive produced by Heyman, Ridley Scott and David Zucker. Pratt would both star and exec produce the conspiracy thriller, which is now in development.

The outlet notes that producers MRC Television and Civic Center Media are planning to shop the series as a multiple-season scripted drama to potential buyers such as premium cable networks and streaming services. Pratt also starred on "Everwood", which ran for four seasons on The WB from 2002-2006. "The Terminal List" is a Civic Center Media project in association with MRC Television. He is the latest former NBC funnyman to take a stab at an action TV series, with "The Office" alum John Krasinski now starring in "Jack Ryan" for Amazon. He also co-starred in "Avengers: Infinity War" and headlines the "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Jurassic World" franchises. He's repped by UTA, Rise Management and Sloane Offer. Both were based on films that Fuqua directed. Fuqua is best known for feature directorial efforts. Along with "The Magnificent Seven", "Shooter" and "Training Day" - the last of which earned star Denzel Washington an Academy Award - Fuqua has directed films such as "The Equalizer" and its sequel, "Olympus Has Fallen", and "Southpaw".
