Thanks to True Blood News for sharing! This season is going to be epic 😀
Alexander Skarsgard has joined Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan in What Maisie Knew, an adaptation of the Henry James novel set in contemporary New York from co-directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel.
U.S. buyers are being tempted during the Marche du Film by WME’s Graham Taylor and Mark Ankner and international sales by Fortissimo Films.
Written by Nancy Doyne and Carroll Cartwright, the story centers on Maisie, a six-year-old girl enmeshed in the bitter divorce of her mother, a rock and roll icon, and her father, a charming but distracted art dealer.
Moore stars as Maisie’s mother, Coogan as her father and Skarsgard stars as Moore’s new husband.
The movie is to roll August in NYC and is produced by Bill Teitler, Chuck Weinstock and Daniela Taplin Lundberg.
Taplin’s Red Crown Productions is producing with Daniel Crown (Dirty Girl) and Riva Marker (The Romantics) serving as executive producers.

Magnolia has assigned the feel good movie of the century, Melancholia, a November release date. Melancholia stars John Hurt, Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist), Kiefer Sutherland (Lost Boys, Mirrors), Charlotte Rampling (Angel Heart), Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”), Stellan Skarsgard (Exorcist: The Beginning), and Udo Kier (Suspiria). Look for it in theatres on November 4th, 2011.
EDIT (28/04/2011): Wrong info. Whooops! Not Alex, but his father Stellan appears in a new Lykke Li’s music video for “Sadness is a Blessing”. You can watch the video here.
In 2007, Lykke Li (pronounced “LUKE-ee LEE”) became a blogger sensation as the chirpy-voiced pixie behind “Little Bit” off her debut album, Youth Novels. She then became a teen curiosity in 2009 when her dirgelike love song “Possibility” appeared in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. In between, the Swede was sampled by Drake and featured (with Kanye West) on N.A.S.A.’s “Gifted.” Now the 25-year-old is in the middle of a world tour (she hits the States in May) to support her recently released sophomore record, the critically lauded Wounded Rhymes.
In interviews, you tend to reference a lot of filmmakers as inspirations — Jodorowsky, Cassavetes, Antonioni ….
Lykke Li: I’m just curious by nature. I’ve always been drawn to cinematic experiences and that approach to music. It’s the way that I do my videos, if you can even call them videos. The latest one I shot, for “Sadness Is a Blessing,” was like a film scene with [True Blood’s] Alexander Skarsgård in it. I’m definitely exploring that world between a short film and a visual story.
