Jim Parrack, who portrays Hoyt Fortenberry on True Blood, has just signed up for the Sci-Fi movie “Battle: Los Angeles“. He will be playing one of the lead roles in the action packed movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning).
Battle: Los Angeles tells the story of a Marine platoon that faces off against an alien invasion in Los Angeles. Other cast members include Aaron Eckhart, Bridgette Moynahan (Lord Of War), Michael Pena (Observe and Report) and Michelle Rodriguez (LOST).
The title of the movie makes a reference to “The Battle of Los Angeles”, the name given by contemporary news agencies to a sighting of one or more unidentified flying objects which took place from late February 24 to early February 25, 1942 in which eyewitness reports of an unknown object or objects over Los Angeles, California, triggered a massive anti-aircraft artillery barrage.
Jim Parrack told The Vault exclusive that he is “very excited” and that he is off to Shreveport in the morning to start Marine Bootcamp. “Off I go to save the world!!”, Jim added.
The filming of Battle: Los Angeles starts on September 9th in the Shreveport area. The release date is set for February 18, 2011.
Due to favorable taxes Louisiana is a popular place for Hollywood film makers to shoot their movies, Alexander Skarsgård is there right now filming “Straw Dogs”.
