Pratt and Brown were spotted on the set of the film Wednesday by DailyMail.com cameras just this past Wednesday in Georgia, with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star unrecognizable as he sported a wig and a handlebar mustache.

The film is based on a graphic novel of the same name by Swedish author Simon Stålenhag. 

It comes just days past the first anniversary of the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin on the set of his movie Rust, after pointing a ‘prop firearm’ at her that then went off, hitting the 42-year-old wife and mother-of-one in the chest and killing her. 

Official investigations were launched by authorities, while cast and crew members who had been involved with the project became embroiled in a bitter blame game, pointing the finger at one another, and making accusations about the overall safety of the set as the world watched on and Hutchins’ family mourned. 

Brown plays an orphaned teenager searching for her brother with help from a robot (Jason Alexander) in Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely’s big-screen adaptation of Stålenhag’s 2017 graphic novel.

Filmmaking siblings Joe and Anthony Russo are directing The Electric State, which felt familiar for the Spanish-born, Florida-raised Brit having worked with the twins Matt and Ross Duffer on Netflix’s Stranger Things.

‘It’s so funny, now I’ve worked with two sets of brothers,’ Millie said in her Netflix Queue digital cover story on Tuesday.

‘They’re actually quite similar. One says yes to everything, and one’s a bit stricter. It’s a really good balance.’

‘Eleven in Stranger Things is so far beyond who I am, while Enola feels like I’m coming back to a place of normality and consistency,’ the SAG Award winner explained.

‘I’m able to really create her character organically . . . Of course, there are times when [director] Harry Bradbeer comes up to me and says, “Now, is that Millie or Enola?” And I go, “That’s Millie, let’s do it again!”‘

In the mag, Millie vented about ‘young women getting dragged down for many different things.’

‘If it’s our maturity, if it’s the way we dress, if it’s the things we say, if it’s the choices we make, we will never be enough,’ Brown lamented.

‘It’s for us to find camaraderie and sisterhood in that. And to stand together and say, “We are enough.” We have to stick together, breaking those stereotypes and standards.’
