“Save The Arctic” Behind The Scenes


Greenpeace have released a Behind The Scenes video of Funny or Die in the Arctic featuring Alexander and Jack McBrayer.

Jack McBrayer and Alexander Skarsgard – the unlikeliest of best friends – embark on the adventure of a lifetime in the Arctic Circle! As they set sail into uncharted waters with Greenpeace to study the effects of climate change, their friendship almost hits the rocks as they’re threatened by turbulent seas, melting glaciers, and – worst of all – the revelation of Alex’s secret reason for dragging Jack up to the icy North. 

The real hero here, of course, is the Arctic – it acts as a global air conditioner, reflecting the sun’s rays and keeping us all cool. But climate change is threatening the delicate balance of this crucial ecosystem. 

Make your voice count – together with Jack, Alex and over 7.5 million people worldwide – http://www.savethearctic.org


Jack & Alex Save The Arctic – it’s finally here!


It’s the one we’ve all been waiting for. Here are the 3 parts of Jack & Alex Save The Arctic filmed earlier this year by Funny Or Die in association with Greenpeace.

New Project Announcement – Sci-Fi Thriller “Mute”



Exciting news as Alexander’s next movie project was announced yesterday. He is to star in the Sci-Fi Thriller Mute for director Duncan Jones, along side Paul Rudd.

Full details from The Wrap

Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man”) and Alexander Skarsgard (“Tarzan”) are set to star in Duncan Jones‘ sci-fi thriller “Mute,” it was announced Tuesday.

Set in Berlin 40 years from now, “Mute” follows Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender who has one reason and one reason only for living here — and she’s disappeared. But when Leo’s search takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can’t tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.

“Mute” is based on a script by Jones and Mike Johnson that was recently rewritten by Damon Peoples. The film will be produced by Stuart Fenegan under the Liberty Films banner he shares with Jones.

Lotus Entertainment has come on board to handle international sales at the upcoming AFM. CAA, which arranged financing for the film, is handling its domestic sale.

Lotus’ Bill JohnsonJim Seibel, and Ara Keshishian will serve as executive producers on the film, which is slated to start production in March. Keshishian, the president of production at Lotus, negotiated the deal on behalf of the company.

“I’ve been working towards making ‘Mute’ for 12 years now. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we’re finally going to shoot this utterly unique film. The fact that I get to make it with Alexander Skarsgard and Paul Rudd makes it all the more exciting! ‘Mute’ is a film that will last. It is unlike any other science fiction being made today,” Jones boasted.

“We’re very excited to work with Duncan and Stuart. They are an immensely talented team that will surely deliver an exciting and cinematic film. Director Duncan Jones is a true visionary filmmaker and the real deal. It’s his caliber of talent that makes storytelling both visually exciting and captivating,” Seibel said.

“Bill, Jim and Ara share the same passion I do for building another vision of the future with Duncan. I look forward to going on this journey with them, and also reuniting withSam Rockwell and composer Clint Mansell … can’t do sci-fi without Sam and Clint,” added Fenegan.

Skarsgard recently wrapped production on David Yates‘ “Tarzan” for Warner Bros. and is represented by CAA. Rudd just completed “Captain America: Civil War” for Disney/Marvel and is represented by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Jones, who previously directed “Moon” and Legendary’s upcoming “Warcraft,” is represented by CAA.

There’s also an article over at Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Duncan Jones’ long-cherished Mute, about a mute bartender who goes up against his city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner, may be coming a step nearer to fruition with the news that Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard have boarded the project. Also joining Mute is Lotus Entertainment, which will handle international sales and finance the ambitious film in time for AFM.

We most definitely approve of this, we love Paul Rudd, we’re rather partial to sci-fi and it sounds like a very interesting script. Today is a good day :)
