Alexander Skarsgard’s Straw Dogs Delayed

March 23, 2010 by  

Alexander Skarsgard is in the remake of Straw Dogs, which was supposed to come out in March 2011. Instead, the remake of the 1971 classic’s release date has been pushed to September 16, 2011, for reasons that are currently unknown. This is unfortunate news for all of us who were excited to see this remake and watch Alex show off his acting chops as a character besides vampire Viking Eric Northman.

However, I did notice something interesting about Straw Dogs and Alex‘s costars. One of them, James Marsden, has worked with yet another True Blood star! James played the lovable Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, in the X-Men trilogy alongside Anna Paquin, who was the beautiful and untouchable Rogue. How interesting is it to see the links behind the film and television industries in Hollywood!
