Even if this new Star Trek sequel doesn’t work out, Chris Pine is going to be alright. He’s got a ton of projects coming up, but one of the most intriguing is with Amazon Studios, the CIA thriller All the Old Knives, in which he stars alongside Thandiwe Newton.
Directed by Janus Metz (Borg/McEnroe), All the Old Knives stars Pine as a CIA agent tasked with ferreting out a mole, only to get wrapped up in a global conspiracy involving a former colleague and ex-lover, played by Newton.
Also in the cast are a pair of screen vets, Jonathan Pryce and Laurence Fishburne. The script is by Olen Steinhauer, who is adapting his own 2015 novel.
Pine is keeping plenty busy, with action flick The Contractor arriving next month, plus upcoming roles in Dungeons & Dragons, Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry, Darling, and I have to believe he’ll turn up in Wonder Woman 3 when that happens.
All the Old Knives hits Prime Video on April 8th.
When the CIA discovers one of its agents leaked information that cost more than 100 people their lives, veteran operative Henry Pelham is assigned to root out the mole from among his former officemates at the agency’s Vienna station. His investigation takes him from Austria to England to California, where he is reunited with his one-time colleague and ex-lover Celia Harrison. The pair are forced to blur the lines between profession and passion in this riveting tale of global espionage, moral ambiguity, and deadly betrayal.
