Taylor Kitsch - Taylor Kitsch Offered Need For Speed Role

Taylor Kitsch has been offered the lead role in 'Need For Speed'.

The 'Battleship' actor is reportedly considering the offer to play the main part in the upcoming DreamWorks film, based on the Electronic Arts (EA) video games of the same name.

EA and brothers John and George Gatins will produce, and George is writing an original screenplay based on the action-packed games. 'Act of Valor''s Scott Waugh is on board as director, according to Zaptoit.com.

Steven Spielberg said in a statement: ''I'm excited about getting back into the creative trenches with John and George Gatins and my partners at EA to bring to life an exhilarating script based on an epic video game that seems to have been made for the movies.

''This is a big piece of business for DreamWorks and we are grateful to Frank Gibeau, Pat O'Brien, Kevin Maher and John and George for choosing us to deliver their goods.''

Rising star Taylor - who stars in 'John Carter' and 'Savages' - says he won't be making any more blockbuster films ''for a while'', but is said to be the only contender for the role and his agents are seriously considering the offer.

'Need For Speed' is set for a February 7 2014 release.
