New Photo of Chris Pine as The Scottish Warrior Robert The Bruce in OUTLAW KING
We've got a new photo to share with you today of Chris Pine as Robert The Bruce in the upcoming Scottish war movie Outlaw King. The film comes from Hell or High Water director David Mackenzie and it's period epic that will tell the true story of the Scottish king, Robert The Bruce, who led his country to freedom from English rule in the early 14th century. The story is set during the brutal period between 1298 to 1306 when Scotland was at the knees of King Edward I of England.
I'm excited to see this film. Braveheart is one of my favorite movies of all time and Outlaw King seems to interweave with that story. Pine also looks great in the role. When talking about the film, producer Gillian Barrie tells EW:
"Robert sacrificed everything he once owned to set Scotland free. He was the second richest person in the British Isles. He gave up everything to take on the most ridiculously powerful army and king. He had to go to hell and back.
"I’m very happy for William to be a national treasure, an icon. But it’s much more deserving that Robert the Bruce gets his place in history."
She goes on to talk about Pine taking on the role of Bruce, saying:
"He’s amazing, apart from the fact his accent is spot on and his horsemanship was stunning. He was genuinely a leader for the rest of the cast. The amount of stunts and action he had to perform on daily basis … riding in a wild terrain, thrown into waterfalls…my hat’s off to him, really."
The movie also stars Ben Foster, Duncan Lacroix, Steven Cree, Alastair Mackenzie, and Florence Pugh. The movie will be released on Netflix on November 9th.
