First Look At Chris Pine As Robert The Bruce In Outlaw King

Chris Pine played a World War I pilot in Wonder Woman, but he's going further back in time for his next role.

Pine will star as the legendary Scottish leader Robert the Bruce in the upcoming Netflix movie Outlaw King, and the streaming service released the first image of Pine in character. Check it out below.

He's reuniting with his Hell or High Water director David Mackenzie, who co-wrote Outlaw King, a period drama about the historic year in which Robert the Bruce fought to regain control of Scotland from the English king and his occupying forces. Aaron Taylor-Johnson will co-star as Scottish knight and feudal lord James Douglas.

Mackenzie released a statement about Pine's involvement with the project. "I am also delighted that Chris Pine, with whom I had a great time on our last film, has joined our Scottish and international cast and crew including the excellent Aaron Taylor-Johnson and the exciting emerging talent of Florence Pugh and Billy Howle," he said. "I know Chris will bring intensity and flair to Robert the Bruce and his struggle to take back his country, being crowned King of Scots, then suffering a disastrous defeat and left on the run with just a handful of supporters only to claw his way, with bravery and cunning, back to victory. This was an early form of guerilla warfare against the might of a vastly bigger, better-resourced enemy, and is one of the great comeback stories of history."

Outlaw King is expected to hit Netflix sometime next year. In the meantime, take a look at some of the movies we can't wait to see in 2018.
