Rising Brit actress Andrea Riseborough spent most 2011 out of the multiplex and in the arthouse, with a number of pics unspooling at festivals including Madonna's "W.E.," James Marsh's espionage tale "Shadow Dancer," and the alternate history WWII tale "Resistance." Big things are on the horizon with roles in a handful of promising efforts including the James McAvoy led action flick "Welcome To The Punch" and Tom Cruise's sci-fi number "Oblivion," and now she's knocking "horror movie" off her to-do list.

Alexander Skarsgård, the young offspring of the well-respected acting talent Stellan Skarsgård, hasn’t quite carved his niche out for himself just yet in the film world. Outside of women everywhere with HBO subscriptions who DVR every episode of horror soap “True Blood” to watch his ripped physique, his excellent spots in Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia,” the HBO mini-series “Generation Kill,” and even his performance in the unnecessary Rod Lurie remake of Sam Peckinpah’s “Straw Dogs” have seemed to go unnoticed despite being praiseworthy. That should all change as he’s been lining up an impressive slate of films, including his first big blockbuster in the sci-fi board game remake “Battleship,” an epic Viking picture he’s producing and starring in, and a plum role opposite current indie darling Brit Marling in “Sound of My Voice” helmer Zal Batmanglij’s “The East.” Now he has another potentially mainstream-ready project to add to his busy slate.
