Chris Pratt is currently and without a doubt one of the busiest and best-known actors in recent times.

It’s hard to believe that he once had to live in a van.

And although he is already covered with film projects up to the top in the next few years, the new dad – Arnold Schwarzenegger is his father-in-law – has still found the time for another film: “The Black Belt” (via Collider). As the title suggests, the coming-of-age film is all about martial arts. More precisely, it is about an inconspicuous teenager who wants to leave his shadowy existence and become a karate champion. He receives help from his headstrong uncle, who accompanies him on this journey.
Sounds like the “Karate Kid” somehow? In fact, you could take any eighties martial arts film in which the main character goes through a transition from weakling to grandmaster. And of course in a montage with groovy music.
The script is by Randall Green, the director’s position is still vacant. “The Black Belt” is produced by Chris Pratt and Jon Schumacher.
