Peter Berg (HANCOCK) produces, directs and stars in BATTLESHIP, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.
The battle for Earth begins at sea.
Inspired by Hasbro's classic naval combat game, BATTLESHIP stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane.
This epic action-adventure is also produced by Scott Stuber (COUPLES RETREAT), Sarah Aubrey (THE KINGDOM), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (THE TRANSFORMERS franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (MASTER AND COMMANDER) and Jeffrey Silver (300). The film is written by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber (RED).
