Our scoop from this past February(!) has been confirmed the day of AFM as Battleship and “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch, pictured, is attached to star in thriller Exit 147, one of three new films being introduced by Umedia at the AFM, reports ScreenDaily.
In Exit 147, Kitsch stars as “a sadistic cop who plays mind games with a young traveller who he stops driving through the desert one night.”
Set to go into production in the second quarter of 2014, it is directed by Julian Jarrold, which we also reported back in February.
Written by Travis Milloy (Pandorum), Exit 147 is a Umedia presentation of a Mandalay Vision production.
