Florence Pugh has been cast opposite Chris Pine as the leading lady in David Mackenzie’s epic period drama.
“The epic period drama will tell the story of Robert The Bruce, the king who led his country to freedom from the oppressive rule of England in Scotland, but it will be far different than Braveheart. Pugh, an English actress, will join Chris Pine who stars as Bruce in the film.”
Pugh’s breakout role was in Lady Macbeth which had critics singing her praises. She is also set to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Fighting with My Family, and The Communter opposite Liam Neeson. She will start filming and adaptation of King Lear later this year.
Mackenzie’s Hell or High Water over performed at the box office, and earned great critical acclaim. Pine played one of the two leads. Mackenzie is directing from his own script.
