Taylor Kitsch and Mark Wahlberg slip out of unemployment queue

Taylor Kitsch is a movie star. That’s as much as I can say about “John Carter”. I know, that doesn’t tell you anything about the movie nor does it tell you whether the “FNL” favourite can act on mars, but the statement does suggest we’ll be seeing a lot more of the insta-star.

The ever so moral gang at Deadline report that Kitsch looks to reunite with director Pete Berg, who he worked with not only on “Friday Night Lights” but also this Summer’s “Battleship” (which, quite frankly, interests me about as much as switching a house full of dead globes), for “Lone Survivor”, a Navy SEAL flick inspired by Berg’s recent trip to Iraq.

Mark Wahlberg and Ben Foster (both of “Contraband”) are also circling.

An adaptation of the book by Marcus Luttrell, Lone Survivor tells the harrowing story of how Luttrell and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountain region, where the team went to kill a terrorist leader. Wahlberg will play Luttrell in Berg’s followup to Battleship, which stars Kitsch.

Berg and Film 44 partner Sarah Aubrey, Akiva Goldsman, Barry Spikings will be producers as well as Randall Emmett and George Furla.

Meanwhile, the abovementioned Wahlberg is also circling “Headhunters”, writer-director Sacha Gervasi’s (“Anvil! : The Story of Anvil”) remake of the hit Norwegian thriller.

“I saw a film recently called ‘Headhunters.’ It’s a Norwegian film and it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. I met with the director and pleaded with the studio that has the rights so we’ll see if we get anywhere with that”, the actor tells Shortlist.

Boys like his remakes.
