A promising new thriller will be shopped to buyers at the upcoming Berlin Film Festival.  Heat Vision reports that Chris Pine is attached to star in the “gritty thriller” Line, which Pineapple Express helmer David Gordon Green will direct.  Penned by The Walking Dead scribe Sang Kyu Kim, Pine is set to star as a patrol agent on a downward spiral following the loss of his wife and young son.  When he unexpectedly finds himself the caretaker of a ten-year-old orphan after a shootout with a criminal cartel, he must go on the run and protect the boy while dealing with enemies on both sides of the law and border.  Hit the jump for more.

david-gordon-green-linePer Heat Vision, Line will be fully financed by IM Global.  This is a promising project not only for Pine, but also for Green.  The filmmaker delved into comedies like Pineapple Express, Your Highness, and The Sitter following his indie debut, but he has recently gone back to his roots to fantastic results.  His last film was the small-scale Paul Rudd/Emile Hirsch dramedy Prince Avalanche, and his dark character piece Joe, starring Nicolas Cage, earned raves at the Toronto International Film Festival.  Green most recently completed production on Manglehorn with Al Pacino, so Line sounds like yet another promising project.

As for Pine, he most recently wrapped roles in the Disney musical Into the Woods and Horrible Bosses 2, and he’ll next be seen in Joe Carnahan’s action-comedy Stretch.  There’s also the matter of Star Trek 3, which will likely begin production late this year or sometime next year, once Paramount concludes its director search.
