Chris Pine to star in The Finest Hours?

Chris Pine is in talks for the leading role in Disney's upcoming coast guard drama The Finest Hours.

The 33-year-old Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit star is in talks to star in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Finest Hours tells the true story of how a Nor'easter storm hit the New England coast in 1952, and two oil tankers were caught up in the middle.

The ships split in half, throwing its crew into the dangerous seas, and it was up to the efforts of the coast guard to attempt to rescue the innocent victims.

Craig Gillespie is believed to be directing the film, while Jim Whitaker will produce the project.
