After starring in a couple of big budget, high profile pics, Friday Night Lights alum Taylor Kitsch is lining up a smaller scale dramatic feature.  THR reports that Kitsch and Brendan Gleeson have joined the cast of Don McKellar’s English-language remake of the Quebec film The Grand Seduction.  The story centers on a tiny village in dire need of a full-time doctor, and the residents’ scheme to lure such a professional into taking up permanent residency.  Gleeson will play one of the village’s residents, while Kitsch will play the desirable MD.  Ken Scott, who wrote the Canadian original film, was initially set to direct before departing to helm an English-language remake of his film Starbuck.

McKellar is now set to helm from a screenplay by Scott and Michael Dowse (Goon).  The ensemble cast includes Gorden Pinset, Mary Walsh, Cathy Jones and Liane Balaban.  Kitsch, a native Canuck, is an undeniably talented guy and will hopefully get the chance to shine opposite Gleeson.  He’s next set to star opposite Mark Wahlberg and Emile Hirsch in Peter Berg’s real-life war drama Lone Survivor.

    Smart move for Kitsch. He’s been becoming Hollywood’s kiss of death. Flop after flop.

    Stick to smaller productions and shine, build back up.

    Take the Travolta route.
