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

The 2015 MTV Movie Awards took place yesterday and Bradley won Best Male Performance for “American Sniper“. He skipped the red/blue carpet but he was photographed on stage during his acceptance speech and in the audience/backstage. The first batch with high quality images are added in our gallery. The official video of his acceptance speech can be found after the jump.
Title: Aloha (2015)
Reason: Rated PG-13 for some language including suggestive comments.
Distributor: Columbia Pictures
Alternative Titles: Deep Tiki, Untitled Cameron Crowe, Untitled Hawaii Project
Deadline is reporting that Bradley is in talks to star and direct “A Star Is Born“.
Warner Bros is negotiating with its American Sniper star Bradley Cooper to make his feature directorial debut on the remake of A Star Is Born. The hope is for Cooper also to star in the film. Once his deal is done, their first stop will be to Beyonce, who once was positioned to play the role of the young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him. She was circling when Clint Eastwood was going to helm the remake, and the director discussed that male lead role with Cooper. She hasn’t yet been re-approached formally. Cooper will take a pass at the script with Will Fetters, who wrote the most recent draft, and the hope is that he can get into this wholeheartedly when he finishes performing The Elephant Man in its London transfer from Broadway.
He also will become a producer on this through Warners-based 22 Green, the banner he shares with Todd Phillips. Jon Peters, Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk also are producers. Cooper is coming off a double Oscar nomination for American Sniper, which has surpassed $528 million worldwide and growing, remarkable for an R-rated war film that cost $58 million to produce. There is some symmetry to these two films. When Steven Spielberg dropped out of American Sniper, Warner Bros worldwide production president Greg Silverman told Cooper that Eastwood was reading the book for recreation. Cooper was able to call Eastwood directly because of the relationship they developed when Eastwood offered Cooper that male lead in A Star Is Born.
Bradley attended the 87th Annual Academy Awards yesterday evening. He was nominated for his work in “American Sniper” but lost to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything). The first batch with high quality images have been added in our gallery:
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.
