Brooklyn Decker joins Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard in Battleship
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Universal’s $200 million gamble…err…blockbuster film, BATTLESHIP has added Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker to the cast that already includes Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna and Tom Arnold. Decker will be playing the love interest to Kitsch’s character. Decker follows behind fellow model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who took over for Megan Fox in TRANSFORMERS 3. BATTLESHIP is only loosely based on the popular board game and will feature battles in the air, sea and on land. There’s even talk of an alien invasion, so needless to say this will be more than two people putting pins in a board.
As for the casting of Brooklyn Decker, I have to question the decision since they already cast Rihanna in one of the lead roles. This film needs a talented actress to give it some legitimacy and I can’t help but fear Universal is taking too large of a risk with this film. They better hope director Peter Berg knows what he’s doing.
