STX Films announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to Chris Pine’s next film, Violence of Action. The movie is currently in post-production and will see Pine at the helm as James Harper, a man that is involuntarily discharged from the Green Berets, so he joins a paramilitary organization to help support his family.
On his first assignment, he travels to Berlin with his elite team on a black ops mission to investigate a mysterious threat. In the course of the mission, he ends up alone and is being hunted across Europe. His new mission is to fight to stay alive long enough to return home and uncover more about the motives behind the people that betrayed him.
Amira Casar, Ben Foster, Eddie Marsan, Fares Fares, Gillian Jacobs, and Nina Hoss also star.
Pine is currently in production on All the Old Knives, with other recent projects including Don’t Worry Darling and the recently announced Dungeons & Dragons film. Pine can currently be seen in Wonder Woman 1984 which premiered Christmas day.
