James Gunn On The Difficulties Of Writing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’

The first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was a fast paced adventure loaded with jokes as the team assembled and skipped across the universe. Vol.2 slowed the pace and over played the jokes, in turn, Chris Pratt’s Star Lord suffered because of this. Filmmaker James Gunn needed to show more and explain less in Vol. 3.

As ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ approaches the crew of the Guardians of the Galaxy will be busy working with the Avengers for the next two years. Look for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ to hit theaters in May or August of 2020. As for the plot for a third Guardians film, Gunn gave a brief overview of what he’s trying to accomplish.

“It’s been pretty easy. The truth is, the first movie is the first act, the second movie is the second act, and the third movie is the third act so I’m tying a lot of stuff together in the third film. We get a lot of answers on a lot of different things, so doing that in an elegant way takes a little bit of grace and elegance. It’s more challenging in that respect writing the third movie than the second movie,” said Gunn to Collider.

Gunn also said that in his writing process he builds out a treatment for each film, roughly 70 pages with pictures and concepts. From this, he pulls the script together.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ will be written and directed by Gunn and should star Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, and Pom Klementieff.
