Amazon Studios is reportedly making moves to acquire The Tomorrow War, an upcoming sci-fi military action film directed by Chris McKay.

The Tomorrow War is set in the near future and focuses on humanity’s war against an invading alien force. The winning strategy humanity bets on is a new ability to draft soldiers from the past.

The film’s cast includes Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Betty Gilpin (Glow), JK Simmons (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy), and Mary Lynn Rajskub (Little Miss Sunshine).
