Last week THR reported that Universal will be spending $200 million on Peter Berg‘s upcoming alien/naval film Battleship. They came close to canceling the project back in June.
Now, they are going ahead with the production and it is set to shoot around Labor Day in Hawaii. Latino Review has the exclusive that the Victoria Secret and 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model Brooklyn Decker has been cast alongside Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, and lead Taylor Kitsch in the film.
She will be opposite him in the role of Sam. For those that don’t know, Battleship is “based on the Hasbro board game and the big budget film is about a naval fleet that must defend our planet from Alien Invaders.”
Battleship hits theaters May 18th, 2012.
Are you looking forward to Battleship? What about Decker as the female lead?
