Jurassic World and Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt will star in comedy The Black Belt, which UTA Independent Film Group represents for sales.
Randall Green wrote the spec script about a shy teen who wants to become a karate expert and the unorthodox uncle who guides him.
Platt and Jon Schumacher are producing through their Indivisible Productions alongside Monarch Media and principals Steve Barnett and Alan Powell. Monarch principal Vicky Patel is executive producer.
Indivisible Productions has a first-look deal with Universal Pictures and has assembled a slate that includes Saigon Bodyguards, which reunites Pratt with his Avengers collaborators the Russo Brothers, and China’s Wu Jing.
Up next is The Terminal List based on the novel by Jack Carr. Pratt will star and serve as executive producer, and Antoine Fuqua will direct and executive produce. The series is a co-production from Amazon Studios and Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television.
The Monarch Media slate includes a musical feature with country duo Florida Georgia Line, military thriller Havoc with South Korean filmmaker Byung-gil Jung attached to direct, Do The Birds Still Sing In Hell?, a musical based on the Second World War biography of a British soldier captured by the Nazis, and an English-language remake of La Lista from director Alvaro Diaz Lorenzo.
