By: John M Jerva

For those of you wondering what the former James T. Kirk is up to you’re in luck because word has come down that STXfilms has acquired the new action/thriller Violence of Action which stars Chris Pine. The cast also includes Ben Foster, Gillian Jacobs, Eddie Marsan, Fares Fares, Nina Hoss and Amira Casar with Tarik Saleh helming from a screenplay by JP Davis.

Per The Hollywood Reporter: Violence of Action follows James Harper (Pine) who, after being involuntarily discharged from the Green Berets, joins a paramilitary organization in order to support his family in the only way he knows how. Harper travels to Berlin with his elite team on a black ops mission to investigate a mysterious threat. Barely into his first assignment, he finds himself alone and hunted across Europe, where he must fight to stay alive long enough to get home and uncover the true motives of those who betrayed him.

Pine is no stranger to action films having starred in the Star Trek reboot films and was also Tom Clancy’s famous CIA operative in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Pine has also seen success playing Steve Trevor in Warner Bros. and DC’s Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984.

“We’re incredibly impressed by what we’ve seen so far of Violence of Action. Chris gives the kind of unforgettable performance that will resonate with audiences everywhere. It’s an elevated action film that has real franchise potential and we are tremendously excited to be working with Chris, Tarik, and the teams at Thunder Road and 30WEST,” Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said in a statement about the film now in post production.

With the movie currently in post, we can probably expect to see some footage from it later this year so keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come.
