The Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård will star in the military drama The Kill Team, which has just been picked up by A24.
The Kill Team is about a young soldier in the United States invasion of Afghanistan who witnesses other recruits killing innocent civilians and considers reporting them to higher-ups as the heavily-armed, increasingly violent platoon become suspicious that someone in their ranks has turned on them.
Skarsgård stars alongside Nat Wolff and Rob Morrow. The Emmy and Academy nominated Dan Krauss will direct.
The Kill Team will be released in 2019.
