Mercy filming day 4,” he wrote on IG Thursday next to a photo of his elevated ankle wrapped in an ice pack. “I have such a great stunt team! AND I sometimes try to get in there and do some of my own stuff. Today, daddy caught a metal post to the ankle. Should be interesting moving forward.”

In a second photo, the ice pack is off to reveal a badly swollen and bruised ankle.

Over the last couple of days, Pratt has been snapped filming Mercy around Los Angeles doing his own stunts including him, dressed as an LAPD cop, chasing a guy in Malibu, with both of them ending up in the ocean.

Pratt stars opposite Rebecca Ferguson in Amazon MGM Studios’ sci-fi thriller Mercy directed by Timur Bekmambetov from a script by Marco van Belle. It follows a detective (Pratt) who is accused of a violent crime, and must prove his innocence is a future where capital crime has swelled.

The cast of the movie, set for Aug. 15, 2025 release, also includes Kali Reis, Annabelle Wallis Rafi Gavron, Chris Sullivan, Kenneth Choi and Kylie Rogers.
