Chris Pine’s ‘Hell or High Water’ to Hit Theaters in August

Lionsgate and CBS Films have set an August release in the U.S. for the heist thriller “Hell or High Water,” starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster.

The movie, directed by David Mackenzie, will open Aug. 12 in limited release, expand on Aug. 19 and go wide on Aug. 26.

The film will premiere later this month in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival.

Pine and Foster portray brothers — a divorced dad and an ex-con — who embark on a daring bank robbery spree to save their family farm in New Mexico. Bridges plays a Texas ranger in pursuit.

The script, penned by Taylor Sheridan, was named to the 2012 Black List. Mackenzie previously won BAFTAs for “Starred Up” in 2014 and “Young Adam” in 2004.

Producers are Sidney Kimmel, Peter Berg, Carla Hacken and Julie Yorn. Production companies are Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, Film 44, LBI Entertainment and OddLot Entertainment.

The project was previously titled “Comancheria.” Shooting began last May in Clovis, New Mexico.
