Hell Or High Water stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster are teaming up once again for the upcoming black ops thriller Violence Of Action.
Distributed by STX Films, Violence Of Action is directed by Swede Tarik Saleh whose previous credits include the 2017 crime drama The Nile Hilton Incident as well as episodes of Westworld and Ray Donovan.
According to Deadline, the script follows James Harper (Pine) who, after being involuntarily discharged from the Green Berets, joins a paramilitary organisation 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.
Speaking about the film, Adam Fogelson from STX said –
“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.”
Starring alongside Pine and Foster in Violence Of Action are Gillian Jacobs, Eddie Marsan, Fares Fares, Nina Hoss and Amira Casar.
Pine and Foster previously worked together for director David Mackenzie’s fantastic neo-Western, Hell Or High Water. The pair play brothers Toby and Tanner, who are forced to carry out a series of bank robberies in order to save their family ranch while being pursued by two Texas Rangers played by Gil Birmingham and Jeff Bridges.
Hell Or High Water was a huge critical success, thanks in no small part to Pine and Foster, and their reunion in Violence Of Action will hopefully provide similar top-tier performances.
