Battleship – Gambit joins Peter Berg’s fleet
Posted by LiveFor on April 8, 2010
The script, by Jon and Erich Hoeber, sees an international fleet come together to battle a water-bound armada of otherworldly origin.
I had previously reported that, Jeremy Renner (S.W.A.T., 28 Weeks Later, The Hurt Locker), was in the running for the role but, according to Heat Vision, he is going on to Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest drama, with scheduling conflicts preventing his involvement in both.
Kitsch is playing a Naval commander named Alex Hopper, described as “wildly spirited” and “a great seaman but a lousy politician.”
Other key roles in the film include the female lead as well as a Japanese commander.
Do you think Kitsch is the right choice for the film? Are you excited about a film based on the board game?
