Chris Pratt has re-teamed with his The Magnificent Seven director, Antoine Fuqua, for The Terminal List, with Fuqua set to direct the series and also executive produce David DiGilio (executive producer and showrunner for CBS All Access' Strange Angel) will be writing the drama and executive producing alongside Pratt and Fuqua.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Antoine Fuqua's Fuqua Films and MRC Television is now in the process of developing a series adaptation of author Jack Carr's bestselling action thriller novel titled The Terminal List with Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt attached to lead the potential series.

The Terminal List is a conspiracy thriller that combines elevated action with deep psychological questions about the cost of pushing our nation's highest trained operators too far. Civic Center was formed in 2018 as a joint venture between UTA, Valence Media, and MRC. The drama will be produced by both MRC TV and Civic Center Media, the two companies behind HBO's "The Outsider". The series follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. The drama will be shopped to prestige outlets like FX and premium cable networks and streaming services. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him.

Chris and Antoine have previously worked together on 2016's The Magnificent Seven, which Chris starred in and Antoine directed. He is the latest former NBC funnyman to take a stab at an action TV series, with "The Office" alum John Krasinski now starring in "Jack Ryan" for Amazon. He is also known for his role as Owen Grady in the "Jurassic World" films. He most recently appeared in the blockbuster "Avengers: Endgame". Fuqua will direct the pilot and exec produce. Both were based on films that Fuqua directed. On the TV side, he has directed and exec produced series including The Resident, Shooter, Training Day andIce.

Fuqua, meanwhile, counts The Equalizer franchise, Olympus Has Fallen, Southpaw and Training Day among his feature work.

He is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
