Taylor Kitsch Targets A Killer In Horror Thriller Exit 147


By:  Sean O’Connell Because of movies like Battleship, John Carter and The Savages, I will shudder at the sight of Taylor Kitsch’s name for at least the next five years. Granted, I didn’t watch Friday Night Lights, so I’ve never experienced the power of the Kitsch bandwagon.

The horror site Bloody Disgusting reports that Kitsch has signed on as the lead for Exit 147, which Julian Jarrold will direct. Kitsch will play []

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Director May Helm Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer


By: Eric Eisenberg Now that he is no longer helming the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the Hollywood is director Rupert Wyatt‘s oyster.
