Taylor Kitsch has signed on for the lead in Battleship, a live-action adaptation of Hasbro’s board game, that will be directed by Peter Berg.
There aren’t any details about his role yet, but Kitsch will certainly be right in the center of this kind of interesting “epic-alien-story” as they already describe it. So, get ready for another alien invasion guys!
Peter Berg previously said a few things about his Battleship:
“The aliens, called The Regents, came here looking for something, but they are not wholly evil bent on world domination. We did nothing to provoke them, but they still have an ecological interest in our world. Also they fire ballistics, not ray guns and will be half-CG half-“man in a suit” technology. But sadly, their ship is damaged somehow and that becomes another part of the plot.”
So basically we have good guys and we have some strange bad guys, so it could be the very much of the story. So, this is definitely not going to be just action movie, because apparently there’s also a sci-fi angle to the film.
And if Taylor Kitsch will be the one to save us, we’re in! C’mon, do you still doubt he coud actually NOT save us? No way, especially since he had this kind of drama in movies like Snakes on a Plane, and we also had a chance to see him in X-Man Origins: Wolverine, so we definitely know that he’s a very talented young man, and he could be just the perfect one for this kind of role!
Funny thing, right? It all started with 3D, than we faced the comic-book adaptations, and yesterday we wrote about Olivia Thirlby and her upcoming fight with aliens. Hollywood trend again?
Oh, let’s wait and see, we’ll be back with new info about Battleship, so stay tuned!
