Chris Pine in Talks to Star in Disney Coast Guard Drama
"Chris Pine is in talks to star in The Finest Hours, Disney’s period coast guard drama that has Craig Gillespie, who directed the upcoming sports drama Million Dollar Arm for the studio, in talks to helm.
Pine is coming off of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and would fit Hours before the next Star Trek movie.
Hours tells the true tale of how in 1952, a Noreaster hit the New England coast, and two oil tankers were caught in the middle. The ships split in two, casting its crews into the ferocious seas, and it was up to the valiant effort of the coast guard to attempt a rescue.”
