Following his duplicitous roles in The Hobbit and Guardians Of The Galaxy, (Richard Armitage’s possible boyfriend) Lee Pace is sticking with the fantastical as Deadline reports he’s set to star in the sci-fi thriller Prisoner Of War. Bérénice Marlohe is also set to star in the alien invasion tale.
The film is ‘the story of an American soldier and a French foreign aid worker who team up in Africa amid humankind’s last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion.’
Chronicle’s Alex Russell was previously set to take the lead role, but he’s now been replaced by Pace. The movie will start filming in September on location in South Africa.
