Brooklyn Decker joins Battleship

August 18th, 2010

Model Brooklyn Decker has signed on to star in 'Battleship'.

The 23-year-old beauty will play a love interest to Taylor Kitsch's lead character in the movie, an adaptation of the board game of the same name.

She is not the first person with little acting series to commit to the project - Barbados-born singer Rihanna is also due to play a role in the film.

'True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard is also lined up to take part in the Peter Berg-directed movie.

The action movie sees a group of alien's come to earth because they require something from the world's oceans - hence the use of ships to repel them.

However, it has also been confirmed there will be air and land fights in addition to the sea-based battles.

It is not known if Decker will play a part in the battle or if she will be a home-bound love interest, Latino Review reports.

Decker has had minor roles in television programmes in the past, including the part of Lexie in 'Ugly Betty' in 2009.

'Battleship' is not due to come to cinemas until May 2012.
