/guardians-of-the-galaxy-2-story-script/Earlier in the week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn held an impromptu Q&A session on Periscope after announcing that his upcoming horror script The Belco Experiment had locked in Wolf Creek director Greg Mclean. There, he revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story treatment has been completed and turned into Marvel. Well, the man held yet another impromptu session this weekend, and this time he's confirmed that his hugely anticipated sequel will officially begin shooting in February 2016! He then went onto offer some insight into the return of Karen Gillan as Nebula.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still two years away, set to hit theaters in May 2017. At this point in time, James Gunn hasn't actually revealed any solid plot details, other than the fact that Star-Lord will go searching for his biological dad, who happens to be an alien. He has also confirmed that Karen Gillan will return as Nebula. Only this time, they want to figure out a way for the actress not to have to shave her head. During the Q&A, he also stated that the film will shoot at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. The first movie was shot in London, and featured quite a few British actors and extras. Ant-Man was also shot in Atlanta, with Captain America: Civil War to follow this spring.
James Gunn met with Marvel this past Friday about the story treatment he recently turned in. He gave no update on how that meeting went. 70 pages of the screenplay have been written as a rough draft. The first full draft of the screenplay is what comes next for the director, who is set to start working on that in the next couple of weeks. Returning for the new movie are Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista as Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax. Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will reprise their voice roles as Rocket and Groot.
