The Raid starring Taylor Kitsch???

Star Taylor Kitsch has been offered the leading role in Patrick Hughes' upcoming English-language remake of Gareth Evans' The Raid. The catch here is that Kitsch is also up for a major part in the second season of HBO's "True Detective," and it appears that the timing for both projects could overlap.

The Raid tells the story of an elite DEA FAST team that becomes trapped in a tenement run by a notorious drug lord, his two highly-violent martial arts killers, and a personal militia armed with machetes and machine guns. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the team must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission.The remake will be written by Brad Ingelsby and produced by XYZ Films, which produced the original film as well. Evans will executive produce the project with the original film's fight choreographers also attached. SOURCE: TheWrap

In my honest opinion, The Raid does not need to be redone, remade or rebooted. Just leave it alone. Sad to say Americans tend to mess up movies like this. What do you guys think about this remake and Taylor Kitsch being offered the role?
