True Detective may hold him up though...
Taylor Kitsch has a tough decision to make: must-see TV or potential hit action remake? The Wrap reports that Kitsch has been offered the lead role in the English language remake of Gareth Evans' new action classic The Raid. However, he is also in talks for a leading role in True Detective season two and the timing of the two projects could clash.
The Raid: Redemption, which earned great reviews and a devoted fanbase upon its release, came out in 2011 in its native Indonesia. The remake will follow the plot of the original, telling the story of an elite DEA FAST team that becomes trapped in a tenement run by a notorious drug lord, his two highly-violent martial arts killers, and a personal militia armed with machetes and machine guns. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the team must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission.
