Former Friday Night Lights actor Taylor Kitsch, after starring in such high profile projects as John Carter, Battleship, and most recently Lone Survivor, will next be seen in the comedy The Grand Seduction. Kitsch plays a city slicker doctor who moves to a small fishing village for a trial residence. The townsfolk are on their best behavior with the cricket loving doc, as they need a medical professional to secure a business contract that will employ its denizens.
Brendan Gleeson, who’s known for playing tough guys (In Bruges, Gangs of New York), is one of the many people who attempt to seduce the good old doctor into loving their town. The picture is directed by Don McKellar, the screenwriter behind the 2008 drama Blindness.
The movie, which clocks in at a meaty 115 minutes, looks pretty charming and would probably fit on a double bill with Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. To see if Taylor Kitsch has a knack for comedy, check out the trailer below:
The Grand Seduction opens in select theaters May 30.
