Aaron Taylor-Johnson Joins “Outlaw King”

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is being set to co-star as James Douglas in “Hell or High Water” and “Starred Up” director David Mackenzie’s “Outlaw King” for Netflix.

Chris Pine is slated to star as Robert the Bruce who succeeded in beating back King Edward I’s armies with help from Douglas, Robert’s right-hand man and the son of the first noble to support William Wallace.

Robert and Douglas learned guerrilla fighting tactics that led to years of surprise attacks, sacked castles and, ultimately, independence for Scotland.

Gillian Berrie, Steve Golin and Richard Brown are producing.
