Chris Pine Lines Up Mantivities
He also co-wrote the comedy
The film takes a look at a familiar theme: a group of friends in their early ‘30s who are all staunchly refusing to grow up, despite staring real life in the face. But they decide to band together to help one of their number mature in certain ways. Hilarity, we assume, ensues.
Pine scribbled the screenplay with friends Will Greenberg, Drew Howerton, Robert Baker, Ian Gotler and Tony Liebtrau, and with that many writers, we’re assuming they just took alternating words. “I couldn’t be happier to begin the adventure of making Mantivities knowing how much fun we all had writing it,” Pine says in a statement picked up by Deadline. “‘Somehow I get to laugh with my friends and call it work.” Michael Patrick Jann, who directed Drop Dead Gorgeous, is attached to call the shots.
As well as the new Trek film and Guardians (which arrives on our screens November 30), Pine will be seen in family drama People Like Us, which is out in the US on June 29, but has yet to set a UK date.
