The title itself is as apt for an action thriller feature as one could be with actor Chris Pine’s newest role in Violence Of Action. Heading to Cannes for sales courtesy of STXinternational with CAA Media Finance repping the U.S., cameras roll this Fall with The Nile Hilton Incident helmer Tarik Saleh directing from J.P. Davis.
According to Brian Welk at The Wrap, Pine plays ex-marine James Reed, discharged unwillingly and resolved to join a paramilitary organization to support his family. On a mission in Poland with an elite black ops unit, Reed soon finds himself betrayed, alone and marked for death and must fight to survive along enough to uncover the conspiracy that now threatens his chances of getting home.
STXinternational will release the film in the UK and Ireland. The Outlaw King and Star Trek trilogy star will next be seen following up his performance in Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman in their Gal Gadot-led comic book sequel, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020.
