Amazon is already working on a sequel for Chris Pratt's science fiction movie The Tomorrow War.

Less than one week after the film arrived on Amazon Prime Video, TheWrap reports that Amazon is already in talks with production company Skydance for a follow-up to the time-travelling alien adventure flick.

If everything comes together, Chris Pratt would reprise his role as biology teacher-turned-alien buster Dan Forester Jr and director Chris McKay would be back as well.

The premise of The Tomorrow War is certainly complex enough for sequels to be feasible — it involves humans from the future travelling back in time to recruit past generations into a war with aliens who'd invade decades from now.

Maybe the sequel will involve the aliens using time travel themselves to knock out the humans' own time traveling capability, therefore creating a Terminator-esque feedback loop? Probably not…

Pratt recently spoke to Digital Spy about the film, explaining that he was drawn to the project specifically because it's not based on established IP like his work with Marvel or Jurassic World.

He explained: "To step in and do something that's completely original based simply on an amazing script from the imagination of a wonderful screenwriter — I was really grateful to be in a position where I could, you know, join up with the studio and say, 'Hey, are you willing to write a cheque for this big of a movie? With no guarantee that people are gonna watch it?'"

No word yet on whether some of the remaining original cast — those who survived the onslaught of those tentacled aliens — will be joining Pratt in The Tomorrow War 2.

The Tomorrow War is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK right now.
