First Photo: Chris Pine As Robert The Bruce

The first official photo has been released from “Starred Up” and “Hell or High Water” director David Mackenzie’s period drama epic “Outlaw King” which is currently in production in Scotland.

Chris Pine stars as Robert The Bruce. The story takes place in a year in the 14th century when the famed clansman fights to regain control having been crowned King of Scots, only to be defeated in a surprise attack and made an outlaw by the English King and his occupying forces.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, Tony Curran, Stephen Dillane and Billy Howle co-star in the film which will be Netflix’s first UK narrative feature.

Mackenzie, Bash Doran, James MacInnes, Mark Bomback and Scottish playwright David Harrower penned the script while Mackenzie, Gillian Berrie, Richard Brown and Steve Golin are producing. A 2018 release is planned.
