Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 may only have just come out, but James Gunn has already begun writing the script for Vol. 3.


James Gunn announced just a few weeks ago that he’d be returning to write and direct the third film, but it looks like he had already begun writing by that point. In an interview with USA Today, Gunn and the Guardians cast revealed writing behind Vol. 3 has commenced. The outlet reports he has been having “pretty intense conversations” with star Chris Pratt about the film and with Zoe Saldana about her role becoming even more significant in the finale of the trilogy.

At the premiere of Vol. 2, Gunn said of the third Guardians, “I think really that the three movies work together as a whole, they’re going to tell one story. This is the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and we’re going to get to know the characters even better in the same way we got to know them much better in this film than the first one.”

There was no indication as to what story the third film could contain, but the picture will much clearer once Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters this Friday.

Producer Kevin Feige previously confirmed to Cinema Blend that the Guardians would be “Evolved slightly, in some recognizable ways. But really they’ll be the Guardians and dealing with the sh*t storm they have to deal with.” With Vol. 3 arriving after the two Avengers movies, expect to see a very different-looking troop of Guardians in the trilogy finale.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither) and stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Aesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface and Kurt Russell as Ego, the Living Planet.
