True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard to play eco warrior

Wednesday August 24, 2011

Alexander Skarsgard is in talks to star in a new thriller about a group of eco terrorists.

The True Blood actor - recently featured as one of HELLO!'s Hollywood hunks - would join rising star Brit Marling in The East which she co-wrote with her The Sound Of My Voice collaborator Zat Batmanglij.

The film is about a female agent who infiltrates an eco-terrorist group called The East, which seeks revenge against unethical corporations. Alexander is set to play the leader.

Zat will direct the movie, which is due to start shooting in October and November in Nashville.

Alexander will next be seen in Lars Von Trier's Melancholia, which opens in cinemas on September 30.
