    it still sounds good and I still congratulate him plus he is in talks maybe it about when they start filming. It was the same thing about the East I am pretty sure he got the role they are just filtering things out.

    @Lilla: Ok. I always take the ‘in talks’ stuff as not a done deal.
    Still wish he’d be able to do a comedy.
    Perhaps after the end of TB

    @ladybug: it was just updated when I wrote it. I wish he’d do a comedy too! Maybe again someday.

    Great news! Hopefully we’ll get treated to some photos again from the set. It would be quite a different role for him yet again. Hiding after what I assume is some sort of viral outbreak.

    Macy Says:

    Apparently this script was highly sought after, and on the yearly Black List, which is a list of scripts that are considered by the industry to be very high quality and will probably do well. Nice!

    @Macy: Here’s hoping :)

    And it is a studio film. wide promo.

    ladybug Says:

    @Finally: So something of a big deal then?

  15. 15
    Macy Says:

    Maybe WB wants him to headline another movie before Vanguard to test things out. Hopefully it does well.

    Lilla Says:

    @Finally: That’s fantastic!!

    Bubu Says:

    It’s confirmed he’ll do the movie!
    So you can take down the “?” now JJ!

    @Macy: Well, sadly, it doesn’t sound like the sort film to be done on the streets of NYC, at least not an open set, probably a lot of studio stuff.
    And the brothers just graduated from college:

    I feel old.

    Macy Says:

    LOL maybe he’ll be filming in Nebraska or something.

    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: I was thinking Ohio, darnnit! :)
    Of course he keeps mentioning Nebraska and Kansas in his interviews-how being famous in Sweden is like being famous in Nebraska or Kansas. It would be only fitting that he film something there.
    I hope they don’t film in Shreveport, he’s probably sick of filming there. He needs to see more of the US than just NYC and Louisiana.

    Finally Says:

    Hiding in a bomb shelter sounds like a city setting I would think. But maybe I will get lucky and it will be in the mountains of Utah.

    @ladybug: I am not certain if it a big deal or not but I am happy to see him cast in another studio film. The indies are so uncertain as to details of release and where they will be released. I hope this means that the studios are finally taking notice of what we already know. That this is a super talented man that should be on screen very often.

    So two of the Skarsgård brothers will be making a foray into the horror arena this year. First Bill is teaming up with Eli Roth for the series “Hemlock Grove,” and now this announcement for Alex! This is great news, especially if the script was highly sought after! I hope this is an indicator of even greater things to come for Alex. It couldn’t happen to a nicer, more deserving guy!

    Macy Says:

    No kidding, like 3/4 of the movies he shoots are done in Shreveport.

    See, and I was thinking those bomb shelters that people have on farms for tornados and whatnot. I don’t see it as a city setting, but maybe. Do large cities have bomb shelters even? I would picture it as his family hiding out from infected people or something.

    I did check the Black List and this movie is definitely on there. Good for him!

    @Macy–You are correct, I read they same thing it was an extremely highly sought after role. He deserves this and a lot more. I
    I was following this throughout the day and was so happy when they finally told us the part was his, he will kill it.
    This is an actor that loves to act just as much as he loves to party and why not when you not only look like he does, but more that that act the way he does.
    I am so excited this is going to be his year, I know it.
