Deadline has revealed that Taylor Kitsch (True Detective) has joined Amazon Studios’ conspiracy thriller The Terminal List. Kitsch will star alongside Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) from director Antione Fuqua (The Equalizer) and writer/showrunner David DiGilio (Strange Alien).
The Terminal List is based on the novel of the same name by Jack Carr that follows “James Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves.”
Kitsch will play Ben Edwards, “a former SEAL and Reece’s best friend. Now a member of CIA Ground Branch, Edwards uses his intelligence access and operator skill set to help Reece seek his vengeance.”
Pratt, Fuqua, DiGilio and Carr will executive produce the series. It is a co-production between Amazon, Civic Center Media and MCR Television.
