Alexander Skarsgard appears likely to join the cast of The East, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. He would appear opposite Brit Marling, who co-wrote the project alongside Zat Batmanglij, who will also direct.
The film is said is to focus on a group of eco terrorists led by Skarsgard’s character. Marling would play a law enforcement agent who goes undercover to infiltrate the group.
Marling, meanwhile, is now in theaters in the just-released Another Earth and will soon headline Sound of My Voice, both of which she also co-wrote and the latter of which is directed by Batmanglij. She’s also slated to appear in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep.
