Chris Pratt is hard at work on his latest project!

Mercy filming day 4,” the actor, 44, began in an Instagram caption on Thursday, April 18.

His post contained two photos, both of which showed an intense injury on his ankle.

“I have such a great stunt team! AND I sometimes try to get in there and do some of my own stuff,” he explained while showing off a picture of himself with his feet elevated, and one shoe off with a makeshift ice pack tied around his ankle.

“Today, daddy caught a metal post to the ankle. Should be interesting moving forward. 🧐,” he continued.

In the second photo, he nixed the ice pack to show off a fresh scar.

Pratt stars in the upcoming sci-fi thriller opposite Rebecca Ferguson. According to a synopsis shared by Deadline, the film follows a detective (Pratt) who is accused of a violent crime and must prove his innocence in a future where capital crime has swelled.

Rafi Gavron, Chris Sullivan, Kenneth Choi and Kylie Rogers are also starring.

A release date has not yet been revealed, but it’s likely that once the film arrives, Pratt’s father-in-law Arnold Schwarzenegger will proudly show his support.

Pratt married the actor's daughter, Katherine Schwarzenegger, in 2019. The couple share two children together — daughters Lyla Maria, 3, and 23-month-old Eloise Christina. He is also a father to 11-year-old son Jack, whom he shares with ex-wife Anna Faris.

Earlier this month, Schwarzenegger stopped by Jason and Travis Kelce’s New Heights podcast where he expressed his approval of his daughter’s choice of a husband.

I’m really happy that my daughter has found him. And that he has found her… they found each other,” he said. “Because they fit really well together and they just look wonderful together. They’re so in love with each other.”
