Video: True Blood Stars’ Upcoming Film Projects

September 3, 2011 by  

Anna Paquin, Rutina Wesley and Alexander Skarsgård:

TB Season 4 poster-redJust because True Blood’s Season 4 is coming to an end doesn’t mean you have to wait until next season to see your favorite stars on screen. The actors have been hard at work on non-vampire related film projects that will be coming out later this year.

Anna Paquin (Sookie) will be staring in Margaret, playing a high school student who “may or may not have caused a fatal bus crash.” This movie was filmed five years ago and its release has been delayed, because writer and director Kenneth Lonergan couldn’t pick a final version of the film that he was content with. Is it a good sign that the film has gone unreleased for five years? You’ll have to see it and decide for yourself. The film also stars Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Allison Janney.

Rutina Wesley (Tara) HBO promoRutina Wesley (Tara) has recently won a role in Immaculée Ilibagiza’s memoir Left to Tell, about the genocide in Rwanda. Sounds promising, but Wesley is always playing such serious roles, maybe one day she’ll star in a comedy!

Last but not least, Alexander Skarsgård (Eric) has a few movies coming out in the coming months. The True Blood vampire will be appearing in What Maisie Knew with Julianne Moore. Skarsgård is also in Straw Dogs with James Marsden and ex-girlfriend Kate Bosworth. Finally, the actor will be starring in Battleship, a film based on the classic board game, costarring Rihanna.

With so many films coming out True Blood fans will have plenty to keep them busy until Season 5. What movies will have you heading to the theaters and which will have you staying at home watching reruns of True Blood? Watch the video and let us know in the comment section below.

    Good luck to all of them.  Of course, I will check out the AS movies.  While Battleship sounds kind of strange being based on a board game and all, I also love Rhianna, so good or bad, I’ll for sure be checking this one out.  I also want to see Straw Dog to find out what the attraction to Kate Bosworth was all about.  Go Alex!!!!

    You forgot Stephen Moyer.  He has The Caller and The Double coming out.  Stephen is the main lead – how could you forget him?

      We could never forget about Stephen! His new movies were not mentioned because they were not mentioned in Wetpaint’s video, which was the basis for our article. We’ve published others about The Caller, and will no doubt again. Don’t fret.

      I just finished up a different article a couple days ago about Stephen’s new role in The Caller.  No one forgot him, we just acknowledged one of his upcoming roles in a separate post.  Look a few posts up from this one.  We could never forget Stephen Moyer!  =)
