Variety just posted this news item:
“True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard, Frank Grillo, Colin Ford and Swedish thesp Michael Nyqvist are attached to star in Henry Alex Rubin’s indie drama “Disconnect,” while Andrea Riseborough is also circling one of the lead roles.
Rubin, who previously directed the award-winning documentary “Murderball,” makes his feature directorial debut with the film. Andrew Stern (“Return to Me”) wrote the script, which follows a large ensemble of characters who are affected — and in some cases destroyed — by the Internet and other forms of modern communication.
Skarsgard will play a former Marine who’s struggling to make ends meet and is emotionally cut off from his wife, prompting him to seek an affair.
Grillo is in line to play a single father and computer safety expert who’s overprotective of his 15-year-old son and wants to keep him away from the dangers of the online world.
Ford would play Grillo’s son, a skater who deals with his own emotional pain by chatting online with a troubled teen under the guise of being an interested teen girl.
Nyqvist will play a man who Skarsgard and his wife suspect of stealing their identity. for the full article please visit:
