Pine, Williams Team On “Old Knives”

Chris Pine and Michelle Williams are in negotiations to co-star in the spy thriller “All the Old Knives” for Mark Gordon Company and eOne.

Set in the idyllic town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, the pair play ex-lovers Henry and Celia — one a CIA spy and one an ex-CIA spy — who meet for dinner.

They relive their memories of the disastrous hijacking of Royal Jordanian Flight 127, which ended in the death of all on board, a failure that haunts the agency to this day.

However, Henry has an ulterior motive – is he there to rekindle the romance or to get to the bottom of a conspiracy?

Olen Steinhauer adapted the screenplay from his novel of the same name while James Marsh (“Theory of Everything”) is in negotiations to direct. Nick Wechsler, Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz will produce.
