Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) has signed on to star opposite Taylor Kitsch in Universal’s sci-fi adaptation of the Hasbro board game Battleship. Peter Berg (“Hancock”) is directing the film which is said to have an “alien invasion” element to its plot:
The script, by Jon and Erich Hoeber, revolves around an international fleet coming together to battle a water-bound armada of otherworldly origin.
Skarsgard will play Kitsch’s brother, a straight and narrow naval officer whom Kitsch, a wildly spirited naval officer, idolizes.
