Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Feature's Star-Lord's Origin Says Chris Pratt; DnA Visiting Set



We get some new information on the James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy movie from Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill Star-Lord in the movie.

We learn that while Peter Quill's origins will be revealed, the movie will not necessarily be a "Star-Lord" film.

"It's not Star-Lord's movie. It's definitely an ensemble. It's a team movie," Pratt told Empire Online at the recent Comic-Con. "You get to see the origin of Peter Quill, but you do get to truly feel everybody. Everybody has a story and a reason why they need to be part of this team and you explore all those things."

We also learn that Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel comic book writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are visiting the set, which is currently filming in the UK. The cosmic duo previously visited production with James Gunn as well (pictured right).

The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey and Glen Close as Nova Prime.

Also rumored for the movie are Ophelia Lovibond and Enzo Cilenti.
