Hollywood star Chris Pratt is set to headline `Mercy,` an upcoming sci-fi thriller from Amazon MGM Studios. The project will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov, who made his Hollywood film debut with 2008`s `Wanted` that featured Pratt in a supporting role. He has since made movies such as `Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter` and `Ben-Hur.`

Written by Marco van Belle, `Mercy` is set in the near future when capital crime has increased. It follows a detective (Pratt) who is accused of a violent crime and forced to prove his innocence, reported entertainment news outlet Deadline.

Charles Roven, the Oscar-nominated producer of `Oppenheimer,` will produce the film through his Atlas Entertainment banner along with Robert Amidon, Bekmambetov`s Bezelevs and Majd Nassif. The project marks a reunion for Pratt and Amazon after the studio released his 2021 movie `The Tomorrow War.`

He also headlined `The Terminal List,` the studio`s series for streaming service Prime Video. “From the moment Chuck Roven brought us `Mercy` and we read Marco van Belle`s script, we knew the film was meant for the big screen,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios.

“As our relationship with `The Terminal List` and `The Tomorrow War`s` Chris Pratt continues to extend across film, we can`t wait to watch him bring this action-packed story to life, guided by Chuck and the vision of director Timur Bekmambetov. We could not imagine a better star and filmmaking team to execute on and deliver what is sure to be a gripping thrill ride and look forward to audiences being able to experience it in theatres,” she added.
