Taylor Kitsch 'won't do any more blockbusters for a while'

By
Taylor Kitsch has indicated that he will not make any more blockbuster films "for a while".

Kitsch, who has recently starred in two big-budget action films – Andrew Stanton's John Carter and Peter Berg's Battleship – confirmed that he is keen to focus on smaller, more character-driven projects.

"Both those films taught me an immense amount of patience, and I think I really brought that over to Savages," Kitsch told Collider, referring to Oliver Stone's new film in which he stars alongside Aaron Johnson.

"I really loved being on this set with these actors, and being a part of it.

"Not that I didn't with the others, but just to make it as raw as this film is and to get back to what it is, going off another actors and really searching, creating and collaborating in that way is really refreshing, and I'll stay on that track.

"There will be no more green screen for awhile," Kitsch concluded.

Both John Carter and Battleship were somewhat poorly received in critical and financial terms - Battleship was described as "a flop" by studio executives and even Berg himself.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Disney had made a $200 million loss on John Carter, and the exit of studio chairman Rich Ross was widely attributed to this flop.

Kitsch and Johnson star in Savages as pot dealers whose shared girlfriend (Blake Lively) is kidnapped by the Mexican drug cartel.

The film is out now in the US and will be released in the UK on September 28. Watch a trailer below:
