Alexander Skarsgard is taking shelter.
The "True Blood" star is going underground as he's joined the cast of the new chamber thriller, "Hidden," according to Variety.
"Hidden" chronicles the plight of a family hiding out in a bomb shelter after escaping a mysterious outbreak. Whether the (supposed) terror outside finds its way in or what transpires in the bomb shelter ends up being more terrifying than what's outside of it remains to be seen.
Whatever the circumstances, we hope that bomb shelter was dug deep enough to accommodate the 6'4" star.
Alexander Skarsgard is carving out a nice career for himself as he follows in the footsteps of his proud papa, having recently raised redneck hell in the remake of "Straw Dogs" and romanced Kirsten Dunst in Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia." He'll soon be returning as Eric Northman in the fifth season of "True Blood" and will be seen fighting aliens as one of the crew of "Battleship," opening May 18.
Twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer will direct "Hidden" from their own spec script, which Warner Bros. has put on the fast track. Stay tuned for news on who will be joining Skarsgard underground.
