It looks like Paramount Pictures has officially changed the name of their upcoming time-travel action film Ghost Draft to The Tomorrow War, which is starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of The Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World) and directed by Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie).
A family man played by Pratt is thrust 40 years into the future to fight a war against a threat that could wipe out all humankind.
The name change likely has to do with their hope to screen the film in China without China, as ghosts (or even references to ghosts) are a big no-no with government censors.
The film seemingly mirrors Tom Cruise’s The Edge of Tomorrow, so they might as well use a similar title.
Pratt has taken to Instagram to announce the title change and posted a new set photo with a bunch of his fellow cast members as filming is taking place in Atlanta, Georgia.

The rest of the film’s cast includes J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Juno), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24, Mr. Show), Mike Mitchell (Love), Betty Gilpin (Glow), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, The Predator), and Ryan Kiera Armstrong (IT: Chapter Two).
The film’s production team includes cinematographer Larry Fong (Kong: Skull Island, Watchmen, The Predator, 300) and production designer Peter Wenham (Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Bourne Ultimatum).
Chris Pratt is a busy bee as he’ll begin shooting Jurassic World 3 (working title Arcadia) at Pinewood Studios UK next year and then once James Gunn completes work on The Suicide Squad he’ll round-out Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy trilogy with the third installment (working title Hot Christmas).
Paramount has yet to give The Tomorrow War an official release date.
