Chris Pine has been signed on to star in a drama directed by David Mackenzie. Ben Foster and Jeff Bridges will also work for the movie titled “Comancheria.” Read on for more details.
“Comancheria” is the next directorial venture of Mackenzie. His previous venture, the movie “Starred up” was well received by critics at most movie festivals. It received critical acclaim for its acting talents particularly those of Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend and Mackenzie’s realism-based direction. The film was also praised for the father-son dynamic of Asser’s screenplay. Wikipedia states that film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 99% of critics gave the film a “Certified Fresh” rating. It is based on 101 reviews with an average score of 7.9/10.
Screen Daily revealed that the production has already started on the upcoming film. “Comancheria” has been written by Taylor Sheridan, who has also written “Sicario.” The writer’s scripts have been placed on 2012 Black List and he is known to pen a good plot.
“Comancheria,” which is a heist film, follows the events in the life of two brothers, which consits of a former convict and a divorced father of two children. The two siblings, who are currently facing the foreclosure of their family’s West Texas farm, teamed up for a near perfect foolproof bank robbing spree. However, it pitches them against the wits of two Texas Rangers determined to take them down. Bridges will likely play one of the rangers while Pine and Foster will take center stage as the brothers in arms.
Heist films are exciting to watch and this one might just prove interesting. Chris Pine is probably waiting for a hit and this might just prove to be one. Judging by his past record, David Mackenzie will probably deliver a film that will impress the critics. This one might prove to be an entertainer after all.
