The upcoming sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy appropriately titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t be out in theaters until May 5, 2017 but the good news is everybody from the first film will be back for the second.
The news comes courtesy of Guardians director James Gunn, who confirmed the news via Twitter on Wednesday.
While it’s no secret that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista were already on board to return for the sequel, no one knew for sure about Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, who both did voiceover work for the first movie but didn’t actually appear in person in the movie.
You can sleep well tonight because Diesel will be Grooting it up once again in the sequel while Cooper will reprise his role as gun toting mini-hero Rocket Raccoon.
Filming on the sequel isn’t expected to start until next year, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will definitely be one of the most highly anticipated films coming out in 2017.
Yes, the Guardians are all returning. https://t.co/fVYLDIpv6c

THR is reporting that Bradley is in talks for “Orphan X“.
Warner Bros. is keeping itself in the Bradley Cooper business.
Hot off the huge success of his film American Sniper, Warners is in negotiations to pick up the movie rights to Orphan X, an upcoming book by Gregg Hurwitz, for Cooper to produce and possibly star in. Todd Phillips, Cooper’s partner at their untitled Warners-based shingle, will also produce.
Hurwitz will pen the adaptation.
The thriller centers on a man named Evan Smoak. He’s called a “Nowhere Man,” and he helps others, sometimes through violent means. A job draws him into a world of human slavery, engineered by a detective of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The book will be published by MacMillan in February 2016.
ooper, who recently wrapped work on the untitled John Wells project and the Hawaii-set untitled Cameron Crowe project, is next producing, with Phillips, Arms and the Dudes, which is to star Jonah Hill and Miles Teller.
Jesse Ehrman and Julia Spiro will oversee for the studio.
Sony announced the title of Bradley’s upcoming Cameron Crowe Movie earlier this week: “Aloha” and it looks like we will get the first trailer soon. Alberta Film Classification (Canadian classification system) added the trailer to their recently classified film trailer list. The trailer got a G rating with a 2:26 running time. Let’s hope they will release the trailer soon. The Projection List is projecting that the trailer will be attached to ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ next weekend, and McFarland the following weekend, but no official word yet from the distributor.
Bradley stars alongside Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, and more. The movie is expected to be released on May 29, 2015 in the U.S and September 4, 2015 in the U.K.
The ERC Box Office twitter account is reporting that the Untitled Cameron is now titled “Aloha“. The movie is expected to be released on May 29, 2015 in the U.S and September 4, 2015 in the U.K.

“American Sniper” made history this weekend in the U.S. box office. THR is reporting the following story:
Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper continued to outpace expectations on Monday — the official Martin Luther King Jr. holiday — grossing $17.8 million and putting its historic four-day debut at $107.3 million, instead of the projected $105.3 million.
American Sniper marks the biggest launch ever for a non-tentpole Hollywood title, as well as for a movie opening in January — much less an R-rated modern-day war film (the previous best for a drama was The Passion of the Christ with $83.8 million). And the film’s three-day haul of $89.5 million marks the No. 2 debut for an R-rated film after The Matrix: Reloaded ($91.8 million), not accounting for inflation.
The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow production, starring Bradley Cooper as real-life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, benefited from a massive turnout in America’s heartland. It also recorded the biggest Oscar bump of all time after landing six nominations Feb. 15, including best picture and best actor.
Deadline is reporting that “Wet Hot American Summer” will become a Netflix limited series with almost the entire cast returning, including Bradley:
David Wain’s long quest to get a follow-up to his cult 2001 feature comedy Wet Hot American Summer off the ground is officially over. After months of deal-making and prep work, I’ve learned that filming has started this week on an 8-episode limited series for Netflix based on the film, with virtually its entire ensemble cast returning.
That includes Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Michael Showalter and Kevin Sussman.
Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote the movie, created the limited series, with Wain reprising directing duties. The two are executive producing alongside the film’s producer Howard Bernstein, Jonathan Stern and Peter Principato.
Deadline is reporting that Bradley and Robert De Niro are ‘circling’ “Honeymoon With Harry” with Dan Fogelman attached to redraft the script. They later published a follow-up story that reports Bradley is ‘eyeing’ to direct the movie himself.
After nearly a decade of trying and failing to get to the altar on Honeymoon With Harry, New Line has hired Crazy, Stupid, Love scribe Dan Fogelman to redraft the comedy as a star vehicle for American Sniper‘s Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. No deal with those two yet, but they are keen to work together again and this is a project they are both sweet on.
Fogelman is a high-priced writer and what he writes usually gets made, so the message here is that New Line is serious about moving forward. Cooper has long been intrigued with playing a formerly self-centered womanizing booze-hound who changed his ways when he met a girl and fell in love. He’s loathed by the girl’s dad, who recognizes himself in the young man. They get engaged anyway. When she dies tragically just before their wedding, the devastated groom heads off on their honeymoon to drown his sorrows and drink himself to death. Who does he meet but his almost father-in-law, who has come to spread his daughter’s ashes on her favorite beach.
