Ben Foster, Gillian Jacobs Join Chris Pine in Violence of Action
With production officially underway, Thunder Road Films and 30West have announced that Ben Foster (Hell or High Water) and Gillian Jacobs (Community) have joined the cast of Violence of Action, a new action thriller starring Chris Pine.
After being involuntarily discharged from the Marines, James Harper (Pine) 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, Harper 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.
Thunder Road Film’s Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee are producing Violence of Action with 30WEST’s Dan Friedkin, Micah Green and Dan Steinman set to executive produce along with Chris Pine, Jonathan Fuhrman, Tom Lassally and Josh Bratman. Esther Hornstein of Thunder Road Films is co-producing.
STXinternational, a division of STX Entertainment, is handling international sales and will distribute directly in the UK and Ireland. CAA Media Finance and 30WEST are co-repping U.S. rights.
