James Gunn hangs out with a raccoon on the set of The Guardians of the Galaxy!

June 7th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


James Gunn has said that his take on Rocket Raccoon has involved bringing actual raccoons into the studio to study. Today Gunn has revealed an image of just such a guest. It came with the note:
“I’ve just hired a new gaffer for the shoot,” he jokes. “Chewing on wires is good, right?”

Guardians of the Galaxy features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions.

The James Gunn directed film also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan and Benicio Del Toro.

The Guardians of the Galaxy is set for an August 1st, 2014 release!
