Alexander Skarsgard: Battleship Brothers with Taylor Kitsch!

True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard has signed on to star as Taylor Kitsch‘s brother in the action-adventure Battleship, Universal’s adaptation of the Hasbro board game.

THR reports Alex will play a straight and narrow naval officer while Taylor will be the wildly spirited naval officer who idolizes his brother.

Peter Berg (Hancock) is directing the movie, which will have an “alien invasion” element. Alex and Taylor begin shooting Battleship on Aug. 30 in Hawaii.

    Alex and Taylor in the same project?! I don’t care what the plot is, I will definitely see this movie in the theater. (I’ll probably see it multiple times).

    They’re both such funny and good guys in real life too…the environment on that film set is going to be FUN!

    “based on the Hasbro board game” really Alex?
    Now I lost interest in this guy.

    I will definitely watch this movie!

    yup Says:

    Doesn’t sound too promising. Movies based on games are hardly ever good….a board game? Sounds even worse than a videogame tie-in.

    LOL, Battleship? Seriously? No, seriously? Were the scripts for “Hungry, Hungry Hippos” and “Connect Four” not completed on time or something?
    That said, I’d watch Taylor Kitsch read the d@mn phone book, so I’ll probably go see this.

    Remember when he said that LA’s film industry it’s such a *creative environment*? well, he’s playing the supportive hunk in a cable vampire show (original… not!) and now he’s gonna be in a movie called “Battleship” based in a board game and alien invasions.
    But… my little brother will love this.

    You Sank My Battle Ship! Says:

    Oh yeah, this movie sounds promising. Not only is it Battleship (“F4!”), but its Battleship with aliens. You know what would be a better, more epic board game adaptation? Risk, a movie about Risk would be good. A movie about Battleship and aliens, not so much

    ^ based on

    Anne Says:

    Based on a board game? I really question the projects he picks. I mean there is Straw Dogs, which sounds stupid and now this.

    peanut Says:

    Sounds like a clunker. Probably make good money but he’s definitely better than this.

    Seems lame.
    At least we’ll get to see ASkars in a uniform.
