Chris Pratt To Star In Rum-Smuggling Drama The Real McCoy

Over the last few years, Chris Pratt hasn’t simply taken a few steps up the industry ladder, he’s catapulted to the top of every casting director’s wishlist at breakneck speed.

Since his scene-stealing turn in Guardians Of The Galaxy, the days of playing third lead in a questionable Vince Vaughn comedy are long gone. Pratt’s veritable leading man qualities, a heady mix of likeable charm and comedic wit, have made him a go-to guy when you need someone the audience can get behind. And now it seems we can add booze bootlegger to his expanding resume.

Per THR, Pratt is attached to the lead role in Universal’s rum-runner movie The Real McCoy. The studio recently bought Bill Dubuque’s pitch during a battle with Warner and now has Tom NcNulty and Michael DeLuca in line to produce.
