Alexander Skarsgard to Topline Warner Bros. Thriller HIDDEN

     April 4, 2012

Following his breakout role on the HBO series True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard is carving out quite a place for himself in the feature film business.  He recently appeared in Melancholia and the remake of Straw Dogs, and now Variety reports that Skarsgard will topline the horror-thriller Hidden for Warner Bros.  The story concerns a family hiding in a bomb shelter after escaping a mysterious outbreak.  Twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer will make their feature directing debut on the project based on a script they wrote.  The Brothers Duffer’s spec script was a hot item late last year, and Warner Bros. was eager to get moving on the film as soon as possible.

Not other plot details are known beyond the basic outline, but the premise provides a number of promising scenarios.  Though it seems unlikely, I’d love to see a swell creature feature with the infected turning into monstrous beasts of some sort.  On the other hand, an intimate character thriller could be nice as well.  Skarsgard will be seen later this summer in the actioner Battleship and recently wrapped Zal Batmanglij’s (Sound of My Voice) anticipated thriller The East and the Internet-infused Disconnect.
