Pine and Foster starred in the Oscar-nominated "Hell or High Water," under Mackenzie's eyes. Now, they may be in for a reunion, as all three are in talks for a Netflix period epic called "Outlaw King."
The film tells the story of Robert the Bruce (aka Robert I), the King of Scots who led his country to freedom from England in the early 14th century. Pine would play Robert, while Foster would be the king's right-hand man, James Douglas.
In "Hell or High Water," the actors played brothers who engage in a series of bank heists around Texas to stop their ranch from being foreclosed. While "Outlaw King" would be set in a very different time and place, it sounds like it also focuses on mavericks willing to break rules to achieve independence. And with the accolades that "Hell or High Water" received, it's little wonder that the three men would want to team up to try to recapture that magic.
Toby is a divorced father who's trying to make a better life for his son. His brother Tanner is an ex-convict with a short temper and a loose trigger finger. Together, they plan a series of heists against the bank that's about to foreclose on their family ranch. Standing in their way is Marcus, a Texas Ranger who's only weeks away from retirement. As the siblings plot their final robbery, they must also prepare for a showdown with a crafty lawman who's not ready to ride off into the sunset. Read More
