violence of action

After frequently popping up in blockbusters and critical darlings in the 2010s, Chris Pine has slowed down his workload following his scene-stealing role in the Wonder Woman films. The Wonder Woman 1984 actor has only appeared in a handful of feature films since 2019, instead appearing to pick and choose his roles with more discretion, executive producing and starring in the Patty Jenkins-directed limited series I Am the Night, for example.

So it feels like it’s about time for Pine to show his handsome mug again and re-establish the dramatic acting chops that he gave us a glimpse of in Hell or High Water. And what better way to do that than with a reunion with his Hell or High Water co-star Ben Foster, in a thriller directed by Tarik Saleh (The Nile Hilton Incident) which had been put up at the Virtual Cannes Market late last year? Pine and Foster will co-star in the thriller Violence of Action, which has now landed at STXfilms.

Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith are now both on board to star in the fantasy-adventure film from directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, based on the long-popular fantasy tabletop role-playing game. We don’t know who any of these actors are playing at the moment, though, so they could all be dungeons and/or dragons, or perhaps neither of those things. Perhaps they’re all playing orcs.

tarantino star trek

Quentin Tarantino approached his fabled R-rated Star Trek script like any of us would: by taking inspiration from his love for Chris Pine. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director is not-so-secretly a fan of Pine’s depiction of Captain Kirk in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movies, and the result is a Star Trek script that has “so much fun” with Kirk, according to Tarantino’s co-screenwriter Mark L. Smith.

Chris Pine sat in his chair on the set of Wonder Woman 1984, his brow furrowed as he pondered the question from one of the journalists visiting the set of the superhero film. The answer he gave was just as serious and erudite as he appears to be — much more philosophical than we’re used to getting on the set of a comic book movie. But as Pine rattles off words like “archaic” and “cataclysmic,” all eyes except his suddenly turn to Gal Gadot behind him, comically poised to creep up and grab his shoulder, surprising Pine. Pine’s face lights up, and the serious atmosphere that had taken hold of the entire group beforehand eases, as Gadot settles into a seat next to Pine and the two of them give the group a peek of the sparkling banter that made the first Wonder Woman such a hit.
