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.
