Rumors have been circulating for a few days now that Alexander Skarsgard is to appear in the new John Michael McDonagh movie “War On Everyone“.
Headgear Films have Alexander listed under the cast, along with Michael Pena.
UPDATE: IMDb are now showing Alexander at the top of the cast list.
And today Deadline seem to confirm his involvement, stating that he is playing the part of “Terry”. Terry is one of 2 crooked cops who are the film’s central characters.
Tessa Thompson (Dear White People) has been set as the female lead opposite Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena in John Michael McDonagh’s indie feature War On Everyone. The film revolves around two corrupt cops who make money blackmailing criminals — until they come up against one who might be far more dangerous than they are. Thompson will play a former stripper who ultimately ends up in a relationship with Terry (Skarsgard).
This seems to us good enough confirmation that Alexander now has this role in the movie. Below is the current synopsis from Headgear Films.
A jet-black comedy about two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?
Filming in currently taking place in New Mexico.
