Jai Courtney (The Suicide Squad, Stateless) has officially joined Amazon Prime Video’s drama-thriller series The Terminal List, according to Variety. Courtney will appear opposite MCU star Chris Pratt in a recurring guest star role.
Based on the bestselling novel by Jack Carr, The Terminal List follows James Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves.
Courtney will play Steve Horn, “the billionaire kingpin behind Capstone Industries. Capstone is an enormously successful global fund with its hand in everything, from pharmaceuticals to fashion. But Horn’s bread and butter is capitalizing on the latest military trends and innovations. Horn’s hubris and influence are equally threatening, and will put him squarely in Reece’s crosshairs.”
The cast also includes JD Pardo, Constance Wu, Riley Keough, Taylor Kitsch, and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
It was announced in March that production on the project had begun with Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Magnificent Seven, The Equalizer) in the director’s chair.
The series is executive produced by Pratt, Fuqua through Fuqua Films, and writer David DiGilio, who also serves as showrunner. Carr also executive producers along with Jon Schumacher through Indivisible Productions, and writer Daniel Shattuck. The project is a co-production from Amazon Studios and Civic Center Media in association with MRC Television.
