Chris Pine

Right now audiences can see Chris Pine back in space for Star Trek Into Darkness, and his action thriller Jack Ryan arrives this Christmas, but his next project will be a little more low key. Variety has word that Pine is set to star in an indie called Z for Zachariah, which will also feature Amanda Seyfried and Chiwetel Ejiofor. What makes this project truly interesting is Craig Zobel is directing the film after making a splash at Sundance last year with his film Compliance. Based on Robert O'Brien's book of the same name, the setting finds a girl isolated in the wake of a nuclear war that took everyone in her life away.

But one day, in a deep valley that somehow still has breathable air, two strangers emerge from the forest, but she might have been better off being alone. The script comes from new writer Nissar Modi and Tobey Maguire is producing the film with a whole bunch of other producers and he says, "Everyone at Material Pictures and Zik Zak Filmworks is thrilled “Z for Zachariah” has attracted such a dynamic and talented cast. With Modi’s enthralling script and the vision Zobel has for the film, we’re excited to bring such a captivating story to audiences.” Production is supposed to begin this August, and it should be something quite different than Pine's back-to-back blockbusters this year.

We read this in Senior school back in the 80's. Looking forward to it. Although back then I hoped for Harrison Ford and Jodie Foster 🙂

Chiwetel is one excellent British actor and Marvel should choose him for black panther
