Alexander Skarsgård to star in ‘Disconnect’True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård, Frank Grillo, Andrea Riseborough, Colin Ford and Swedish thesp Michael Nyqvist (“Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”) are attached to star in Henry-Alex Rubin’s indie drama “Disconnect.”

Rubin, an award-winning commercials helmer who previously directed the Oscar-nominated documentary “Murderball,” makes his narrative feature directing debut. Andrew Stern (“Return to Me”) wrote the script, which follows a large ensemble of characters who are affected — and in some cases destroyed — by the Internet and other forms of modern communication.

Skarsgård will play a former Marine who’s emotionally cut off from his wife, prompting him to seek an affair. Grillo plays a single father and computer safety expert who struggles to protect his 15-year-old son from online dangers. Ford would play Grillo’s son.

Nyqvist is set to play someone who Skarsgård and his wife suspect of stealing their identity, while Riseborough will play a TV reporter who pursues a story about a young male model who poses nude online.
