Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgård and Willem Dafoe are being targeted for roles in the drama.
Robert Eggers, days away from the opening of The Lighthouse, is setting his sights on his next feature project.
Eggers is sticking to historical times with The Northman, a Viking drama that is being set up at New Regency.
Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgård and Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe are in various stages of talks to star in the saga.
Lars Knudsen, who produced Eggers’ breakout The Witch, as well as Ari Aster’s Hereditary and Midsommar, is producing the project. Skarsgard is said to have approached Eggers with the initial idea for the story and will also be a producer.
Written by Eggers and Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón, Northman is described as a grounded story set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century that centers on a Nordic prince who seeks revenge for the death of his father.
If talks progress and deals are made, Skarsgard would play the prince and Kidman would portray his mother. Keeping fingers crossed that all works out and Alex will be in this role! Funny how the film is titled The Northman. His character in True Blood was Eric Northman.
The Richard Madden update twitter account posted some great photos of Alexander Skarsgard, Richard Madden and Samuel L. Jackson attending the Giorgio Armani Fashion Show held in Milan.

Alex’s upcoming role in The Hummingbird Project has him sporting quite a different hairstyle. Many fans were quite surprised when he shaved part of his hair for the role. The first video for the trailer was just released on Youtube. Enjoy!
Nicole Kidman appeared on The Ellen Show today. Here is the video where she chats about working with her co-star Alexander Skarsgard. The HBO mini-series “Big Little Lies” will premiere on February 19th.
Bankside Films have released a new image and new promo poster from Alexander Skarsgard’s movie War On Everyone which has its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on February 12th. No word yet on if Alexander will be able to attend, he is currently in LA filming Big Little Lies. Cross your fingers he can make it!
If like me, you’re more than ready and willing for the build up to the release of The Legend Of Tarzan to really kick in next year, then you’ll probably appreciate a little trailer analysis to keep you going over the cold winter months. So if you’ve got a spare 20 minutes or so during the festive period, just pour yourself a nice glass of Christmas mulled wine, pull up a comfy chair and settle back to find out more about Tarzan 2016 with this trailer review from Beyond The Trailer.
Alexander Skarsgard’s new movie War On Everyone will receive it’s world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. It will be the third time that director John McDonagh has brought one of his movies to Berlin.
Fingers crossed that Alexander should have no problems attending the festival, which runs from February 11 to 21, as he is expected in Berlin next year to begin filming his latest project Mute.
