If you are a victim of “post Guardians of the Galaxy syndrome”, then this upcoming sci-fi thriller film starring Lee Pace could be one of the ways to curb it!
According to Deadline, Lee Pace who starred as Ronan The Accuser in “Guardians of the Galaxy”, is replacing Chronicle’s Alex Russell to be the leading role for a new sci-fi thriller film, titled “Prisoner of War”.
However, he will not be portraying an alien in the film as he will star as an American soldier instead. In the film, he will be teaming up with Skyfall‘s Bérénice Marlohe who plays as French foreign aid worker and join the humankind’s last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion in Africa.
The shooting for the film begins in September in South Africa and it’ll be directed by music video and TV veteran Joe Miale. Together with writer Rowan Athale, the film will be the director’s first feature film as he has always been hired to direct music videos and shorts, including live-action short films for 2 blockbuster video games, “Half-Life” and “Assassin’s Creed”.
Meanwhile, Pace will be appearing as Elf King Thranduil again in “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies”. And if you love TV as much as films, spot him in AMC’s 80s drama, “Halt and Catch Fire”.
He also snagged a supporting role in Stephen Frears’ upcoming Lance Armstrong biopic.
