We love Taylor Kitsch, even though he’s failed numerous times to become that summer superstar Hollywood wanted him to be (see John Carter and Battleship).
Thankfully, Tinseltown hasn’t given up on Timmy Riggins as he’s allegedly in talks to star in the second season of HBO’s “True Detective,” and now has been offered the lead in Screen Gems’ English-language remake of The Raid, reports TheWrap.
Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) is directing the action movie, which is gearing up for a January 2015 shoot. Coincidentally, that is when the second season of “True Detective” is slated to wrap filming, says the site.
Brad Ingelsby (“Run All Night”) wrote The Raid remake, which is based on the outstanding original 2011 movie written and directed by Gareth Evans. It followed an elite Indonesian SWAT that gets trapped inside a building run by a vicious gangster and his thugs.
