Chris Pine-led All the Old Knives adds Pryce & Fishburne
After acquiring the rights to the film adaptation of the espionage thriller novel, Amazon Studios’ All the Old Knives is expanding its Chris Pine (Wonder Woman 1984) and Thandie Newton (Westworld)-led cast with the additions of Oscar nominee Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes) and Laurence Fishburne (Black-ish), according to Variety.
The story is set in the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea and follows ex-lovers — one a CIA spy, one an ex-spy — meet over dinner to reminisce on their time together at Vienna station. The conversation moves inevitably to the disastrous hijacking of Royal Jordanian Flight 127, which ended in the deaths of all on board. That failure haunts the CIA to this day, and Henry has come to Carmel to close the book on that seedy chapter. As they parry, flirting, over California cuisine, it becomes clear that one of them is not going to survive the meal.
All the Old Knives will be produced with Chockstone Pictures and Nick Wechsler Productions in association with Entertainment One (eOne). Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz and Nick Wechsler are set to produce through Chockstone Pictures with Matt Jackson producing via his Jackson Pictures banner.
Pine is executive producing through his Barry Linen Productions along with Joanne Lee of Jackson Pictures and Kate Churchill of Churchill Films. Executive producers include Richard Hewitt and Mark Gordon.
