Chris Pine has confirmed that he and director Denis Villeneuve will be taking a break from the upcoming sci-fi drama Argo after it wraps production.
He revealed the news in an interview with Digital Spy, saying that he was feeling “crazy” and “unstable” when he was approached to helm the project.
“It’s just so crazy.
It’s such a weird film.
I can’t believe I’m doing it.
It sounds crazy, but it’s not,” he said.
“I just feel really, really weird.”
Pine, who played the role of Captain Jack Harkness in the film, explained that he felt “very lucky” to be given the opportunity to play a leading role in a blockbuster.
“I have to say, I’m really lucky to be in Argo, but the thing that’s really great about this movie is that I have a lot of experience, and I’m a pretty intelligent guy,” he continued.
“And Denis was such a fantastic director and so talented that I think it’s just really exciting.”
Pine’s Argo is based on the bestselling novel by David Mitchell and is being directed by Denis Villenueve (Argo) and David Michôd (Arrival).
The film stars Tom Hiddleston as an astronaut who is stranded on an isolated planet and finds himself drawn to a mysterious alien woman.
The film will debut in U.S. theaters on May 23, 2018.
