Chris Pine has his next project, and it’s an enterprise of his own making. Star Trek’s new Captain Kirk, who just wrapped production on the sequel, will star in Mantivities, which he co-wrote with several friends, including Will Greenberg, Drew Howerton, Robert Baker, Ian Gotler and Tony Liebetrau. According to the trade paper Screen Daily, Pine is also set to co-produce the project, a comedy about a group of guys who attempt to introduce their pal, an ex-child star, to the realms of reality and responsibility by taking him along on a day of activities.
“I couldn’t be happier to begin the adventure of making Mantivities, knowing how much fun we all had writing it,” Pine told Screen Daily. “Somehow I get to laugh with my friends and call it work.”
Mantivities is one of several projects on Pine’s plate. In addition to the Star Trek sequel, he’s wrapped People Like Us, which will be out in June, and the animated feature, Rise of the Guardians, scheduled to open in November. And, according to Screen Daily, he’ll likely shoot Mantivities before production begins later this year on the Untitled Jack Ryan Project.
