Deadline is reporting that Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt will play Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in Guardians of the Galaxy.

The actor, who has also starred in Parks & Recreation, will take on the role of the main protagonist, who is raised on Earth then learns that his father was from outer space and is drawn into an intergalactic conflict that eventually leads to him becoming the leader of the team.

James Gunn is directing with a release date set for August 1, 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
