Alexander Skarsgard Starring in 'The East' with Brit Marling?

Alexander Skarsgard is in negotiations to star in the thriller The East opposite Another Earth‘s Brit Marling, THR reports.

The film, which Brit co-wrote, centers around a female agent who infiltrates an eco-terrorist group.

“If a deal comes together, [Alexander] would play the leader of the group who seeks revenge against unethical corporations,” according to the mag, which adds that filming is tentatively scheduled to shoot in October and November in Nashville.

Pictured inside: Alex wearing a red shirt on the set of his latest movie, What Maisie Knew, on Monday (August 22) in NYC.

    OMG, for some reason this picture reminds me of how he looks in Om Sara. So frigging hot! I love him in red, though I wish the shirt wasn’t so baggy.

    I would really love to see him stray away from thrillers and try out a romantic role. Not like true blood. But an actual drama/romance type.

    Hey, at least we’re getting some news with our daily dose of vitamin A! You sure get a good idea of just how invasively close the crew are when filming, can you imagine having that around you when you’re filming love scenes a la TB?

    To me it’s clear he’s filming something. You can see the cameras pointing right at his face in some of these shots. Though he is super cute doing it! Maybe it’s a little bit of both.

    Camille Says:

    See, they’re filming him and something upward in this shot.

    @Camille: It had something to do with constantly hitting the “down” button and never realizing that it didn’t make you any better at going there, and that it wasn’t what the guy meant by practise anyways. It was a lot less circular the first tme…

    Canuck Says:

    @YouBetYa: You’d be wrong as usual then.

    @Jessie: That’s funny, Jessie. I was thinking the same thing! That scene in Om Sara where he is at the open house and talks to his ex out on the back porch. That picture very much reminded me of him leaning against the porch post.
    He looks amazing in red, btw. Great pictures and some actual news..Thanks JJ :)
