Chris Pine is swapping his phaser for a broadsword and re-teaming with director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) for Netflix’s ambitious new historical epic Outlaw King.
Pine will take on the legendary character of Robert the Bruce, a powerful warrior who would challenge the throne of England and through cunning and courage would rise to become King of Scotland.
This first look image shows a shaggy-haired, bearded Pine whose clad out in leather armour and has his hands gripped on an imposing blade. His appearance and stance display a hungry and determined ruler and with Mackenzie, at the helm, you can bet that this new film will be packed out with grit.
Outlaw King is the first part of a proposed trilogy that will chronicle Robert the Bruce’s war to become king and which will exclusively stream through Netflix.
Outlaw King is expected to be released in 2018.
