Actor Chris Pine is in talks to star as Scottish King Robert the Bruce in period drama 'Outlaw King' with Ben Foster.
The character Bruce was first profiled as the Scottish royal in actor-filmmaker Mel Gibson's 'Braveheart' who after betraying William Wallace and allowing the British to capture the rebel leader would go on to fight the British for Scotland's freedom following Wallace's death.
In this version, Bruce will take center-stage and include not only his fight against the British, but also the Catholic Church over the idea of a free country, reports variety.com.
Pine's 'Hell or High Water' helmer David Mackenzie is directing the film from a script he is writing.
